    Default Yoghurt

    I want to try my ds (almost 7 months) on yoghurt.

    Everything at the supermarket, including the 'baby yoghurt' & the sachets for the yoghurt market are all full of sugar.

    Which one am i meant to give him?

    I dont have a clue (or the time) to make it completely from scratch

    I just compare the nutritional table on the back and buy the one with the least sugar out of them, usually a Greek style natural yoghurt.

    Short of making it yourself (which I don't have time for either, you aren't alone there!) it's the best option.

    Also remember bub won't be having loads of it, the figures are per 100g or per adult serve, so he'll have far fewer grams of sugar in his serving.

    Jalna full fat or greek yogurt is the best - I used organic goat yogurt which DS loved and you can add your own fruit - avoid all yogurt marketed to children and yogurt with fruit in it as it's usually full of additives

    I get Greek yoghurt & mix fruit purée through for mine... DS loves it, no sugar (apart from natural sugars from fruit)

    The only one I've found that doesn't have added sugar is farmers union greek yoghurt. I then either add fruit or a tiny bit of honey sometimes - ds will eat it plain alot.

    I like Tamar Valley no added sugar, I eat it and DD loves it (about one of the only food she does like haha). It is annoying that the kids varieties are so sugary.

    I use the five AM organic natural baby yogurt. That is no added sugar. DS loves it.

    When you look at the nutritional panel it will always say some sugar - this is the lactose, as long as there is no sugar in the ingredients list you are okay. I buy 5am natural, or if you're in Brisbane you might be able to get barambah organics natural yogurt (they also make a baby one) or the jalna is good too.
    Good in you for being so conscious of the fact that sugar is in everything and looking closely at the labels, it is crazy that yogurt made for babies would have added sugar.

    When Dd was that age I bought plain Greek yoghurt and mixed it with fruit.

    Now she's a little older I tend to try a different brand every week but I still pay attention to the amount of sugar.
