i usually buy fromage frais for dd (amost 12 mth) but picked up some wholemilk yogurts by accident at supermarket.... is it ok to give her the yogurts ? or should i not and get some more fromage frais? what is the difference between them?
i didnt have a clue!!! duh i am really thick lol. i guess it comes from hv saying give fromage frais, dont know what made me think they were better than yogurts, thanks moomina and aloha, will buy yogurts from now on!!!
DD is just coming up to 6 months and I'd like to start giving her yoghurts and cheese. I was thinking of plain yoghurt with a cube of pear or apple in it or some mashed banana because petit filous seems rally sugary, would this be ok or would normal wholemilk yoghurts do as well?
As for cheese how do you give them it? I know that sounds silly but can I add some to say pureed veggies? And what kind of cheese, we have mature cheddar maybe I should buy some mild?
Mild is less salty than mature, sweetkitty, so that's a good start. Grating some into pureed veg is the time-honoured way to introduce cheese.
Lilsmum, don't worry - the packaging is not helpful. The fromage frais lot never explain properly about the absence of good live cultures in their product (these help with digestion for all ages), they emphasise the calcium content (also good). Fromage frais is made differently to yogurt, it is not "fermented".
But as you get both these benefits from wholemilk yogurt...
If your shop doesn't sell Rachel's (which are delicious), Yeo Valley and Noddy are both other good brands to try.
My ds (and me)loves Yeo Valley fruit organic yohurts. I think they're called tumbletots, or some such silliness. You can get them in Tescos. Not sure about sugar content though...will have to check. Didn't realise petit filous were so sugary
