When my oldest was a year and a half old, he outgrew the first of his many allergies, dairy. He was a petite kid, frequently on antibiotics for recurrent ear infections, so our pediatrician recommended his first dairy based food be a whole milk based yogurt. We found Stonyfield Farm’s YoBaby yogurt. Not only was it a whole milk yogurt, but it was organic. Win! He loved it and so did we.
Fast forward 8 years and 3 more kids, and we are still a YoBaby family. The fact that it is made with whole milk is even more important for our youngest. He is a bit more than petite — he’s incredibly small. He needs good, healthy sources of calories and that is exactly what YoBaby gives him.
He is now almost 11 months old and a YoBaby through and through. In fact, more often than not, I can’t get the spoon in his mouth nearly fast enough. (I keep trying to tell him that the container doesn’t taste good. That doesn’t seem to stop him..) When he sees the container, especially the apple flavor, he starts flapping his arms and panting. If he could talk, I’m pretty sure he’d be saying “hurry up, hurry up, hurry up!!”
There is one small caveat to his yogurt filled excitement… The mess. The ooey, gooey, milky mess. It’s on the table, the high chair, the floor.. In his hair, and some days in mine. He does try to help clean it up by licking any reachable, yogurt covered surface. But in the end, we all need a good cleaning. Thinking about it now, I’m pretty sure it’s less about helping clean and more about not wanting to waste any of it.. My skin is well accustomed to the yogurt facial, as is his. I don’t fret, though. There are far worse things than organic yogurt that could end up all over my house. I am raising boys, after all.
I love that Stonyfield Farm’s YoBaby yogurt is such a staple in my kids’ first foods. Helping them grow, keeping them healthy and building their palettes.
