Do you find yourself wondering when can babies eat yogurt? This article is for you! Here’s why your baby should be eating organic yogurt as early as 6 months.
This post was created in partnership with Stonyfield. All opinions are my own.
I remember when my baby was a YoBaby… in fact, both of them! As a young, first-time Mom I read all the books and followed all the “rules”. I knew babies weren’t supposed to have milk before age 1 and I assumed yogurt was the same since it’s made from dairy. I was wrong.
While introducing first foods into a baby’s diet can be exciting, it’s also a stressful time for parents. In research Stonyfield conducted with ORC International*, they found out that at least one-third of parents admit to feeding confusion during baby’s first months, and 53% feel overwhelmed by the varying opinions on early childhood nutrition. So I wasn’t alone!
“Most parents don’t know babies can begin reaping the benefits of yogurt as young as six months,” explains Dr. Tanya Altmann, MD FAAP. “I recommend feeding Stonyfield YoBaby® daily at this age. It’s a great first food, made with organic whole milk, it delivers Vitamin D and calcium for bone growth, and now added BB-12® to help support digestive health.”
There’s also many other reasons to love YoBaby® yogurt…
With more than 17 years of experience making organic yogurt specially crafted just for babies, it’s no wonder that Stonyfield YoBaby® yogurt is the #1 Pediatrician Recommended yogurt for babies between six months and two years old among refrigerated yogurts. A pioneer in the category, Stonyfield has been making its YoBaby® line since 1999, providing a number of reasons for parents to turn to Stonyfield when making their feeding choices:
- Not only is Stonyfield YoBaby® yogurt the #1 Pediatrician Recommended yogurt for babies between six months and two years old among refrigerated yogurts, it’s the only organic yogurt made especially for babies.
- Stonyfield YoBaby® products are made with organic ingredients including organic whole milk yogurt to meet babies’ unique nutritional needs.
- Stonyfield YoBaby® yogurt is available in a number of flavors: Plain, Vanilla, Banana/Mango, Blueberry/Apple and Peach/Pear, in a 4 oz. 6-pack format.
I am also so excited to find out that Stonyfield YoBaby yogurt is also available in an unsweetened formulation – Stonyfield YoBaby® Plain – and that Stonyfield is working to remove added sugar in the rest of the YoBaby® line as well.
