Yoghurt is a great way to help young kids transition from bottles into solid food or to sneak nutrients into the snacks of some fussier older children. But rather than buying pottles from big brands with questionable sugar levels and undesirably mushy fruit pieces, why not create your own flavours!
Here are some of the most delicious, and nutritious, yoghurt combinations which will make feeding your little one a breeze!
Before we get to the add-ins, let’s decide on our base. Whole Milk Yoghurt is full of protein, calcium and probiotics – as well as being low in sugar – making it one of the best yoghurt choices for young kids. It is also known for being much easier on kid’s tummies than other variations.
Now the fun part, the combinations!
Stewed apples, or commercial apple puree, along with a pinch of cinnamon can create a warming and tasty meal.
Pureed pumpkin with a pinch of cinnamon may sound like an odd combination for yoghurt but makes for a sweet but not to overwhelming treat.
Peaches and Pecans blitzed up with the yoghurt can be super delicious and make for a more interesting texture.
A spoonful of raw honey adds a little bit of sweetness without becoming overwhelming.
Mashed banana, which is an excellent snack on its own but when mixed with yoghurt, can create a more filling and nutritious meal.
Pureed pears is another snack which is not to harsh on the tummy but adds a touch of flavour to the otherwise plain yoghurt.
Grated carrots, walnuts and cinnamon, which may sound a bit instance are actually very tasty, much like the deceptive carrot cake but without all the sugar!
