    Default Healthiest yoghurt to start 6 month old on

    Hi all,

    So I had my MCHN appt and was told I could start DD on yoghurt. Trouble is I think she is a lot more sensitive to foods than DS was and I dont want to start her on a yoghurt thats full of preservatives and such.....

    So what would be the gentlest, additive and preservative free one? Is Jalna OK?

    I've given both my kids the full fat vanilla jalna from early on. Last time I looked, it doesn't contain sugar and my kids love it.

    Jalna is fine, just get plain, full fat, no fruit and see how she goes, then add your own fruit or even plain Greek yogurt is good , my DS started on plain goats yogurt

    I gave my DD jalna. It doesn't taste too tart so it is a bit more palatable. I would just start on vanilla.

    Thanks, Looks like I'm off to the shops to get some Jalna. The MCHN also said that mixing celerac, farex and baby cereals in general with cows milk would be ok as I struggle to express BM. Anyone else done this and been ok?

    And yes mixing cows milk on cereal is fine. I used to put in DS formula in it too.

    Id go jalna, biodinamic organic plain full fat yoghurt. Jalna is the best by far, i wouldnt put most other brands in my body.
