The added crunch from the cereal is a nice added texture and if your kids are like mine, they’ll just save the marshmallows for last or eat them first. We tend to all enjoy this different ways and that’s what so fun about the layers.

I like to eat off the marshmallow first, then eat the yogurt, then have the cereal last but you can easily use a spoon and mix it all together at once to enjoy as well.
