    Just wondered what type of fromage frais / yogurt most people give their babies - wondered if petit filous etc have too much sugar?

    My dd loves the yeo valley strawberry yogurt. I mix it in with her porridge on a morning as well as petit filous (sp) I don't buy these very often.

    on a side note, has anyone tried the Muller little Stars Yogurts? or are they full of sugar? I've not read the labels so not sure whether I should buy any or not.

    I doubt they're the worst thing ever (we don't have them here so I have no idea of the nutritional labeling), but sugar from fruit is very different to added refined sugar so it's kind an apples to oranges comparison. :thumbup:

    I didn't realise you could give babies yoghurt over 6 month! you learn something new everyday! Can you buy plain yoghurt and mix berries/banana in it too?

    That's what I do. I buy plain full fat greek yogurt and mix in either some fruit puree, or just fresh cut fruit for him to pick out. Sometimes with berries, I'll microwave them for about 20-30 seconds so that they stew slightly and then mix it all into the yogurt so that the juice gets all mixed in and the fruit is soft and squishy.

    We don't get a massive selection here (we have stuff shipped from the UK, but because everything is shipped for an entire supermarket, they only buy limited brands), but we do have Muller Little Stars, Munch Bunch, Petit Filous and the Danone Petit Suisse (don't know if this is available in the UK :confused:)

    I think Muller Little Stars is good; they do both yoghurts and fromage frais. My LO prefers Petit Filous and Munch Bunch, which are probably more sgary, but my LO doesn't have much of a resatriction on sugar, because we have to try to boost her calorie intake :shrug:

    I heard you shouldn't give them adult yogurts, especially natural yogurts, or those with "good bacteria" etc, because apparently babies can't digest it? :shrug:

    Ermm, that's the first I've ever heard of it, especially since probiotics are good for babies as well as children and adults and are found naturally in breastmilk. My pediatrician actually recommended using supplemental probiotics (the 'good bacteria' in yogurt) to help with Ronan's reflux when he was wee.
