Hi everyone! I want to start DD (7m) on yoghurt and cheese . What types/ brands should I use? Does it have to be a baby brand ? or just use regular yoghurt? I was reading that white cheese is better than the yellow ones

Question about yoghurt and cheese..

you can give them whichever yogurt you like its personal preference really.
just try and get a smoother variety to start with rather than one with fruit chunks.
the reason a lot buy baby yogurts is cause they cone in a handy sized portion.

Always read the labels! I personally would not buy any yogurt with any colors/flavors/preservatives and any yogurt with fruit in it usually is too high in sugar! The best yogurt for babes is plain yogurt ( Greek yogurt/Jalna are 2 I recommend) and then add your own fruit - I actually started my DS on goats yogurt and added strawberries/blueberries/banana etc
with cheese , my naturopath recommends white cheeses ( healthier, much less artificial colors/preservatives) stay away from kids cheese - like yogurt it is a marketing ploy and most are higher in salt etc than normal cheese!
I started DS on goats cheese , ricotta, cottage cheese and feta ( just watch the salt content!) try them on plain rice cakes, toast , on pasta , my now 17 month old loves marinated goats feta in everything! Don't be afraid to try different ones, babies need a variety !

Ricotta is great to add to pasta sauces, put on toast, baked with lemon and fruit as a dessert.
We go through 1-1.5kg of ricotta a week here.
