Whilst weaning my son I went out to get some babies yogurts only to find the they are all loaded with sugar. I wanted to find an alternative as I was trying to avoid feeding my son unecessary sugar, etc. So I was delighted when I came across Little Rachels Fruit Yogurts.
Basically they are organic, GM Free yogurts which are sweetened only with fruit juice so no artificial sweeteners or sugar is in them at all. They come four big pots to a pack (90g each) and the flavours are: Strawberry, Banana, Apple & Blackberry and Raspberry. Other than the yogurt the only other added ingrediants are: fruit, fruit juice and rice starch.
They taste fruity, creamy, smooth and a little tart as you would expect from naturally sweetened yogurt. They do have small "bits" in them from the fruit but only tiny and not lumps like in adults yogurts.
Compared to other similar products like Yeo Valley organic yogurts they are reasonably priced, selling for around £1.48 in Asda and Tesco. Compared to non-organic products and supermarkets kids own range they may seem pricey.
If like me you want to avoid feeding your baby unecessary sugar and sweetener which isn't recommened for babies anyway these are a great yogurt and the only one I could find targeted for the kiddy market without sugar in it. Otherwise its a case of buying full fat unsweetened yogurt and adding your own pureed fruit which isn't that convenient!
My son loves them which is the most important thing really - especially the strawberry flavour and demolishes the whole pot but to start with the pot might be a bit too big for smaller babies. But since the pots are a good size they are suitable for toddlers and children too!
The Rachels Organic company has been around since 1942 and was was Britans first certified organic dairy. it is a family run company who advertise that they want to provide pure, natural and nutritious food, and only the best organic ingredients, with no hidden additives, to produce food you can really trust.
Most supermarkets including Asda, Tesco, Sainsburies, Waitrose and Morrisons now stock this product and I have never had any problems in getting it during my weekly shop - although the supermarkets don't seem to be sure where to put it as it isn't always with the kids yogurts! Worth hunting for in my opinion though.
