radhika's Review

Which yoghurt to give to a 9month old baby? As babies can't have normal cow's milk yoghurt.. So is it only a Greek yogurt?

Hi Radhika,

Thanks for getting in touch, it can be confusing around what is appropriate to give so good question!

Food made from cows' milk, (e.g. yoghurt and custard) can be given to your baby from around 7 months onwards. The reason cows’ milk is not recommended as a drink before 12 months is because it is not nutritionally suitable and therefore babies (under 12 months) who are fed cow’s milk as a drink instead of breastmilk or infant formula are at risk of developing low iron stores and having other health issues.

When looking at a suitable yoghurt, children under the age of two should eat full fat dairy products, so avoid low fat, diet or ‘lite’ options at this stage. Natural unsweetened yoghurt has quite an adult flavour and some children may not be so keen on it, try adding some fresh or stewed fruit or berries to increase acceptability. There is no need for special ‘baby’ yoghurts, although these tend to be smooth and have quite a bland flavour. Some yoghurts are labelled as suitable for 1 year +, this is due to the requirements of the food standards code. There appears to be no reason why these products would not be suitable for infants from 7 months + who can eat other dairy products such as cheese etc.

We hope this helps, if you have any further questions and would like to speak to one of our Nutritionist, you can call us on 0800 55 66 66.
