Can you please suggest a brand of yoghurt suitable for a 7 month old baby

Please suggest a brand of yoghurt suitable for a 7 month old baby. From what i have read in the supermarkets all have some (5-6g) sugar in them. Thanks

Answer: Hi There, Well done to you for checking labels! There are a couple of things to look for though. Firstly check the ingredients list for added sugar. It’s important to keep in mind that most foods have naturally occurring sugars, for example, milk has lactose and fruit has fructose, so yoghurt, plain or fruity will naturally have some levels of simple sugars (as shown by the ‘sugars’ figure on the nutrition panel). Looking for added sugar in the ingredients panel, in this situation, where the food naturally comes with simple sugar can be more helpful. So on this basis I love Bornhoffen, Jalna have some varieties that have no added sugar, and there are now many boutique yoghurts that are just as good. Of course you can also make your own, see tip sheet link below: Yoghurt Hope that helps. All the best, Leanne
