How a Frozen Yogurt Business Plays an Important Role in Kids’ Health

Most parents want to provide their kids with healthy meals every day. According to Skinny Chef Jennifer Iserloh, this is best done by preparing lots of vegetables, cooking healthier grains like couscous, and discouraging kids from eating junk food. Even sweet foods can be given a healthy spin, according to Iserloh.

No healthy meal is complete without the veggies. Stock your fridge with simple veggies that you can steam or saute in just minutes on the stove top. My picks include broccoli, carrots, and spinach, and try topping them with simple things for flavor. I like a small pat of margarine with reduced sodium soy sauce, or a squeeze of lemon and a teaspoon of olive oil, or a little chopped garlic and grated Parmesan.

Stock your freezer with things you use on a regular basis that can help you make a fast meal — like skinless boneless chicken breast, ground turkey, and healthier versionsof frozen fries. Frozen fruit is great for fast breakfast smoothies and desserts combined with frozen yogurt.

Frozen yogurt shops offer fresh and fat-free products without the unnecessary additives for parents who only want healthy and tasty treats for their kids. Experts agree that frozen yogurt is a better alternative to, say, ice cream for a number of reasons. Yogurt is often made with low-fat or fat-free milk and contains live, healthy bacteria. Most yogurt products don’t even use sugar and salt, and instead rely on natural sweeteners like honey or agave nectar.

In the 1990s, the frozen yogurt industry accounted for at least 10 percent of the market for desserts and sweets. That number has improved significantly since then, thanks to growing public consciousness about the health benefits of this dairy product. Established franchisors like Fresh & Healthy Brands offer frozen yogurt business opportunities to enterprising folks who wish to cash in on this healthy eating movement.

Starting a frozen yogurt business today can be lucrative, yet the day-to-day operations can nonetheless be costly, considering the resources required. Yogurt shops are either self-service or full-service retail outlets, with the latter often requiring automated equipment. You also need to take note of the requirements for business permits, tax identification numbers, and food licenses, which change from city to city and across states. Be sure to choose a high-traffic location that offers sustainable demand for frozen yogurt.
