“ Brand: Danone „
I have two sons who absolutely adore the Petit Filous range of yogurts so when my daughter reached 4 months and began to enjoy yogurts these were my ideal first choice for her, although she likes them they always seem to be quite runny and more ended up all over Mia's clothes rather than in her mouth! So last week I thought I'd try something different and came across 'Baby Danone' well, wow! Produced in France these are the perfect size for little appetites (50g, which you get 6 of for around £1.65) and are a very tasty dessert for young babies from 4 months old. They are made with follow-on-milk and are delicious! (honest!) 'Made with real fruit puree' I expected to find, when I opened the top, that the puree was just mixed in and it would resemble a 'normal' smooth yogurt...wrong! The 'yogurt' isn't actually a yogurt it's a fromage frais but anyway it is seperated into two segments, the top half being REAL fruit puree, the choices are apple, apple and strawberry or apple and banana, quite a limited choice but delicious all the same! and the bottom part being a 'normal' fromage frais. Now you can either stir the 2 parts together or feed them seperate, my daughter prefers either way and I have never seen a 5 month old cry when you take the pot away before!! bless. The ingredients are : Fromage Frais (60%) Fruit Puree (34%!!) sugar (hmm) maltodextrin, vegetable oil, gelling agent, pectin, elderberry juice (!) citric acid, vitamins A,C,D,E and iron (very healthy!) The packaging is quite attractive too! if, like some of the ones we have had, the writing isn't too clear on the top of the lid where it should tell you the flavour (the fruit is almost the same colour in all of them) the pots are colour co-ordinated, pink and white for the apple and strawberry, green and white for the plain apple and yellow and white for the apple and banana, handy to know if your baby prefers one more th an the other! Although these aren't one of the cheapest on the market I definitely think they are the best choice for babies or young children (even adults! hehe) unique in the sense they are the only yogurt (I'm off again!) made from follow-on-milk so better and more healtier for your little one. The consistency is neither too runny nor too thick and is extremely easy for even the fussiest eaters to muster, if it is at all possible to be fussy about puddings! lol. All in all I would say if you don't mind paying the little bit extra these are the perfect choice for a tasty pud!
So picture the scene we have a gorgeous five month old baby girl called Carly who has decided she doesn't like any foods except Milk and Broccoli and Cauliflower. We've tried baby rice and yes we've tried Farley's rusks but all she ever did was smile knowingly as if to say "you're wasting your time here guys" and then cry as loud as she could to make sure the neighbours could here what awful parents we were.This was until we stuck a bottle of milk in her mouth which would stop the crying so instantly you'd have thought it was a tape recording(and they say babies aren't clever). Thgen one day a friend says have you tried Danone fromage frais to which i replied "isn't that what they cook with on masterchef"(i thought it was a posh type of custard) No replies our friend my child swears by itand always finishes the pot. So we reluctantly tried it knowing full well Carly would just smile politelyn as always. WRONG!!!! she opened her mouth and statrted to murmur (you know that sound you make when you eat chocolate mousse or Creme Broulet for the first time)and then kicked her legs the minute she had finished her mouthfull. Now she will not eat anything else besides the previous mentioned foods but to see the joy on her face when we tear of the lid makes me realise babies aren't bad eaters they're just damn fussy like me and you.
Danone have had a good idea to use fruit puree on yogurt made with follow on milk. The only problem is that their flavours are limited (3 available) and my son doesn't like the banana flavour which is very strong and smells awful. Consequently to get 4 nice yogurts you have to throw the other 2 away which is not economical. If Danone could produce another selection with different flavours then I'm sure this product would go far. The size of these yogurts is perfect for a small baby and the taste in the strawberry flavour and apple flavour is very good.
My daughter is 8.5 months old and LOVES this product! She can't seem to get enough of it. I like for 2 reasons. One is that it is made with follow-on milk so even if she doesn't have her bottle, she's getting what she needs. Second, sugar is 3rd on the list of ingredients not second as with most other products. The size of the pots are good for her as they are just enough for dessert. I sometimes add my own fruit to them if she seems particularly hungry.
As my son is approaching 6 months, I was recommended by my health visitor to try some baby yoghurt type products to increase the types of food I'm giving my baby, so I tried the Danone baby fromage frais. It is excellent, it comes in packs of six small pots, 2 apple & strawberry, 2 apple & 2 apple & banana. It's made with follow-on milk which is better for older babies than cow's milk as it has higher levels of iron and the protein & vitamin contents are adjusted for growing babies. (It is the only fromage frais which is made of follow-on milk.) Not only does each pot contain fromage frais, it also contains a helping of fruit puree (34%). If you are like me & don't have the time or facilities to make lots of fresh fruit or veg purees, this is excellent. It's actually the first time I got my boy to eat any fruit puree. (he hated the Heinz fruit purees) The first time I gave it to him, I mixed in the puree with the fromage frais & he wasn't keen on it, so the next time I gave him the fromage frais with a bit of fruit on every spoon and he loved it! I'm very impressed with this product, it's a good, healthy dessert. It's a little overpriced, but it's a great way of giving your baby fruit if he isn't normally keen on it. I would recommend this product to every mum!
My mu bought these youguts for my son and at first I foud them veyr good. They are made with follow-on-milk and have fruit on the top. After a few days of these my son had the worst poos ever. When i looked at the ingrediants I found that they had vegetable oil in them, not the sort of thing I wanted to give to my baby. I swapped these for Petis Foulis ones and found these much better. Although the danone ones were a good price and looked good I wouldn't bother trying them again because of the ingrediants. I would much rather give my baby fresh pureed fruit.
My daughter loved these. They are made with follow on milk so they are suitable for young babies, and they contain calium and extra vitamins! They have a layer of real fruit puree on the top so your baby won't miss out on a serving of fruit at meals times! They are very tasty and made with wholsome ingredients making a happy baby and happy mum! I think the price is very appealing too, it does vary from store to store but I've paid form about £1.49 to £1.65 for 6 which I don't think is too expensive!
I have found these fromage frais brilliant. They are made with follow on milk, specially devoploped by paedietricians to meet his/her needs as part as a balanced diet.( what i'm trying to say is that they are really good) Danone are also enriced with iron and contain the perfect balance of vitamins A,C,D and E But my best thing about them has to be the fact that they are layed at the top with a pureed fruit. So they are tasty too.
