Quark and Berries Parfait

2013 Kids Recipe Challenge Winning Recipe: 1st Place!  [After school snack: Grades 1 to 3]

Eden, from Toronto, says, “Children will LOVE this recipe as it is very yummy, colourful and full of fresh fruit”. Kids can do most of the recipe themselves - a great way to get involved in snacktime.  

Preparation Time: 5 minutes



  1. Try something new! Quark is a fresh cheese available in the dairy aisle alongside sour cream and cream cheese. Sold in a tub, it is great to enjoy on it’s own or stirred up with herbs as a dip. If quark is not available, look for a thick balkan style or greek yogurt to use instead.
