Q:

Can I give my toddler yogurt? If so, which kind is best?

Hi everyone,

I'm a first-time mom and I'm wondering if it's safe to give my toddler yogurt. She's almost 2 years old and I want to make sure I'm providing her with healthy food options.

If it is safe to give her yogurt, which kind is the best to give her? I've seen so many different types of yogurt in the grocery store, and I'm not sure which one is best for her.

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

Yes, you can definitely give your toddler yogurt! It's a great source of protein, calcium, and probiotics, which can be beneficial for their digestion.

My son is also 2 years old and loves yogurt. I usually buy him plain, whole milk yogurt and add some fruit puree or honey for flavor. I try to avoid the flavored yogurts because they often contain added sugars.

Another good option is Greek yogurt, which has even more protein than regular yogurt. It can be a bit tangy, so you may want to mix it with something sweet for your toddler.

Overall, yogurt is a healthy snack option for toddlers and can even be used as a substitute for sour cream or mayonnaise in recipes. Just make sure to check the ingredients and choose a yogurt with low sugar content.

Absolutely! Yogurt is a great choice for toddlers. My daughter is also around 2 years old, and we've been giving her yogurt as a snack or dessert for a while now.

We usually opt for the plain, unsweetened yogurt and mix in some fresh fruit or honey. Whereas, sometimes we also buy the pre-packaged yogurts, but we always make sure to check the label for sugar content. Sometimes flavored yogurts contain too much sugar and it's better to buy plain and add sweetness yourself.

In my house, we also like to make yogurt parfaits with granola and fruit. It's a fun way to get my daughter excited about eating yogurt and it can be a healthy breakfast or snack option.

Overall, I definitely recommend giving your toddler yogurt, just make sure to choose a healthy option and watch the sugar content.
