Is it ok to feed her natural yoghurt rather than baby yoghurt?

Is it ok to feed my 8 month old daughter natural yoghurt rather than the specific baby yoghurt?

Answer: Hi There, In fact I think it preferable to be honest. It seems many ‘baby yoghurts’ have a long list of ingredients and sometimes even sugar. Compared to the yoghurts we tend to think of as adult ones, the natural ones, which have just the good stuff. So yes, go for it!! You are right on track. Some brands that come to mind include Bornhoffen, Jalna and there are lots of lovely boutique (smaller brand) yoghurts on the market too. Just read the label and try to find somewhere that it is made from fermented milk and cultures. For more on yoghurts I have a tip sheet on Huggies, the link is: Yoghurt All the best, Leanne
