Did you know that most babies can start eating yogurt as soon as they start eating solids? This means that they can start having yogurt at about six months old.
When your child starts eating solid foods it is an exciting time. It feels like it is a new gateway. The thing is, the transition to eating solids can be an exciting time, but there are certain things that you need to do to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Expect a mess. Eating from a spoon is a learned talent which means the first week or two of spoon feeding can often be messy. Don’t worry, however, because they will soon get the hang of it, and once they do there is no stopping them!
Introduce one food at a time. With my older son, I found out he was allergic to some of the meats in baby goods. I figured this out because I was giving him only one food at a time and he was reacting every time he had meats. Since this is a time where food allergies and sensitivities can be discovered, it is much easier to narrow down the culprit when there is only one food introduced at a time.
Embrace whole milk. Your child won’t start drinking solely whole milk until he or she is a year old, but whole milk can be introduced along with solid foods at six months. Whole milk yogurt is an excellent choice for one of your baby’s early foods because it contains nutrients such as calcium, protein, and vitamins.
Happy Family has been a name in baby and toddler foods for a while, but recently they launched their new Happy Family whole yogurt line at Walmart. This is a game-changer. These yogurts, which come in individual containers as well as pouches, are made not only with whole milk yogurt and Vitamin D, as well as contains probiotics. The yogurt contains no added sweeteners, is USDA Organic, and non-GMO.
What is even better is that there is an Ibotta offer associated with Happy Family whole yogurt. When you purchase 3 pouches you can earn $1.00 in credit with this offer.
