Yogurt for baby

Posted by TTN Palawan on

 

Yogurt is a yummy food produced by the bacterial fermentation of milk. Cows milk is the most common type of base for yogurt, but milk from water buffalo, goats, ewes and even camels can also be used to make yogurt. Yogurt can be a yummy and healthy first food for baby, full of calcium they'll need for strong bones. Whole milk yogurt also contains an impressive amount of vitamins and minerals for baby. And because it has probiotics or the healthy bacteria, feeding your baby yogurt will help alleviate diarrhea when symptoms arise.

Yogurt is also a great source of protein. Because of it's culturing process, the protein is easily digested by little tummies. Most pediatricians recommend starting your infant on Yogurt around 7-8 months of age. Some pediatricians also recommend yogurt as a great first food (from 6 months+).

Selecting a whole milk yogurt is the most beneficial to your infant as babies need fats in their diets for proper growth. You may want to consider buying unsweetened, plain, pasteurized, made from whole milk and contains live cultures.
