I tried Rachels organics ones, the sames my DS (toddler) seems to eat with no problems but DD just refused it completely!
It seems to me she's finding them not sweet enough...but then I don't want to go straight into really sugary kids yogurts.
Any suggestions?

My ds (now 3) use to eat Turkish yogurt (which is pure and creamy) with fruit puree added if he fancied it.

I used natural plain yogurt, both kids loved it from 6 months. And you can add fruit, purees, or even a squirt of honey when they are older. And it's much cheaper too, I buy a huge pot and spoon out into individual bowls.

I used to use Plum Baby or natural yoghurt with fruit puree.

Now mine are a bit bigger I buy either big pots of Rachels or Yeo Valley. I still won't let them have Petit Filou, or Thomas the Tank or any other 'kids' branded yoghurts as they are so sugary.

Plain natural yoghurt (or greek style yoghurt) here. A lot of the "kiddie" yoghurts are very artificial or very sweet and not really very much in a pot.

Both my daughters were happy to have them plain so we didn't introduce anything with it until a lot later so they got used to it as they were. But yes, puree can sweeten it.

Greek yoghurt with some puréed fruit added. DD is particularly loving apricot or blueberry.

We're a big fan of plum fromage frais- creamy and fruity but without sugar. But they are quite expensive so we often stew up some fruit (whatever is in season so likely apple and sultana at the moment) to make a compote and then mix it with some organic natural yoghurt. We also sneak in some extra goodness like almond butter (without salt) or ground linseeds for omega 3 and protein. It goes down a treat (and has done since little one was very young).

YeoValley Natural Bioyoghurt with some mashed fruit(cherries,blueberries and pear)

Well, I'll try some natural yogurt with fruit compote then. I'm already using home made compote to mix with porridge and it goes down really well so I'll give it a try. Thanks for the suggestions smile

Yeo Valley Bio Yoghurt (or similar) - mix in a dollop of fruit puree or mashed fruit. Goes down a tread.
