“ Brand: Rachels / Type: Yoghurts „
When it comes to buying food for my boy, I am always really conscious of the ingredients, much more so than when I am buying for myself or my husband. I was quite shocked when I realised how much sugar went into a standard yogurt specially designed and marketed at children (we all know the ones I mean), so for ages I gave my boy plain yoghurt with homemade fruit puree stirred in. Then one day I saw a packet of Rachel's My First Yoghurts on the shelf in the supermarket. I had previously tried and really enjoyed the grown up yoghurts so was intrigued by the product. The packaging clearly stated that there was no added refined sugar and that the product contained organic wholemilk yogurt with fruit puree, naturally sweetened with fruit juice, all good things in my book, so I popped them in the trolley and took them home. There is a mixture of flavours in this pack, raspberry, banana, strawberry and mango and the proof of this pudding, as they say really is in the eating. Each of the yoghurts is deliciously creamy, with a really lovely fruity flavour - no artificial tang at all - you can almost taste the vitamins!! The best thing though is there is no over sweet taste that you can usually find with "children's" yoghurts, just a great flavour. What I also like about these yoghurts is that they are a full 90g size rather than those tiny standard baby yoghurts that have about 2 teaspoon fulls in them. They are a really good size for a toddler pudding and includes 20g of the recommended daily allowance of Calcium. These yoghurts are completely free from additives, colours or preservatives, they are non- GM, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. Price wise, they are about £1.70 for 4, so not the cheapest but well worth it for a guilt and stress free pud. All in all a jolly good pot for your tot!
