Yoyo over Yogurt

We love us some yogurt around these parts!  Yogurt was one of baby boy’s first new foods after the basic fruits and veggies were introduced.  I waited until around 8 months or so to introduce it because it has dairy in it, and I wasn’t sure about an allergic reaction.  Baby boy had some spit up issues so we took a break from the yogurt for a bit (I really don’t think the spit up was from the yogurt though), but we are back in the yogurt game now at 15 months (and have been since a year)!

I was using the baby yogurt because it was made from whole milk, but after looking at the sugar content and reading this post, I decided to back off from the “baby” yogurt and introduce plain Greek yogurt instead.   A lot less sugar and a whole lot more protein!

I was concerned that baby boy would not like the bitter taste of the Greek yogurt, but I was pleasantly surprised! I probably shouldn’t be seeing that he eats couscous for breakfast for goodness sake!

Even though baby boy seems to like pretty much everything that is put in front of him, I have been enjoying making his Greek yogurt a bit tastier with some yummy add ins.
