What's a good everyday yogurt for a 7mo baby?

Petit filous seems a bit sugary. TIA!

My DD loves full fat Fage Total Greek yoghurt. It's not sugary, and it's creamy, tasty and better value for money than 'kids' yoghurts.

I would just go for a full fat natural yoghurt.

I was going to say what winkly said. Make sure it is the full fat one though.

Full fat Greek yoghurt is fab, I agree with the PP. It's a good thick texture too, so they can have a go with a spoon themselves.

Plain yogurt is best obviously, but if you are going for a flavoured one, the lowest sugar one I have found is tesco goodness - not the fromage frais, they have a new one with flavours such as carrot and mango, and beetroot and raspberry.

Full fat natural yoghurt with a spoonful of unsweetened fruit purée is also good.

Fab, full fat plain/Greek yog it is, thank you all!

DD isn't picky about flavour so plain will be fine but we've also got a ton of fruit purées in the freezer so we can mix it up from time-to-time smile

Little Yeo has less sugar. Dd absolutely loves them

I use full fat greek style yoghurt. Decanted into small pots, chuck in a couple of bits of frozen fruit and presto - value, healthy, delicious snacks.

When I read your post quickly, I thought you said "and pesto"! I was wondering if anyone would actually mix pesto into yogurt and fruit until I read again more carefully....!

The Lidl full fat greek yogurt in the giant tub is gorgeous, and no tartness at all so wouldn't even need fruit

Can I ask a silly question. If I buy one of those big pots of yoghurt, once I open them, how long can it keep for? Thanks!

Plain yeo valley is delicious!

Aren't they usually supposed to be eaten around 3 - 5 days after opening?

squizita Wed 13-May-15 20:00:33

blush I just eat the rest of the play yeo valley so don't know about 3 or 4 days.
If I want to flavour it but have no sweet fruit cause the stuff from tesco was sour and hard again , I have some own brand fruit puree and tinned fruit in juice on standby. Read the tins and plastic tubs to find ones with nothing added. Store cupboard must have!

OK thanks TheLastPickleInTheJar... smile

I always used plain yogurt, with a spoonful of fruit purée in for flavour. If you prefer a ready-flavoured one, the Yeo valley baby (not toddler) yogurts have no added sugar, just fruit. Their toddler ones DO have sugar; check label if unsure!

The Yeo "baby" fromage frais still has added sugar, it's just called "concentrated grape juice" rather than sucrose/fructose etc. It's a hidden sugar. But, to be fair to Yeo, the sugar content is still fairly low compared to other brands.

Yeo valley plain is what I use. It auto corrected to "play".
