    Default Question about yoghurt and cheese..

    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

    TIA!!

    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.
