Yogurt can be such a healthy snack for every member of the family. It can be. Unfortunately, much of what you find at the supermarket is loaded with sugar or, worse, artificial sweeteners. And if you want something suitable for babies and young kids, you have to wade through all the fat-free varieties too.
So I have long been a fan of Liberté Yogurt for us all, but particularly for my skinny, skinny kids. All varieties are made from real milk or cream, sweetened with sugar and/or fruit purées, probiotic and incredibly delicious. Mary got hit hard with a gastric virus when she was about 14 months old and I could feel how much weight she dropped just by picking her up. We were already slated for an extra check up to make sure she was gaining well and I was afraid this would mean another extra appointment I’d rather not have to make time for. So I loaded up with avocados and eggs and all kinds of filling foods at the grocery store. I also picked up some Liberté Méditerranée which is 7 to 10% milk fat. She loved it and plumped up nicely in the end.
I was even happier, however, to learn that Liberté has come out with a special baby line. It’s very lightly sweetened with a touch of sugar and/or fruit purées and contains 5 to 6% milk fat (which is probably more reasonable for every day consumption.) It comes in 4-packs of single (or double or triple depending on your baby’s age/appetite) servings which means it’s also great to grab on the go.
Mary loved it and so did my other kids. So did I! Even the VERY lightly sweetened plain yogurt was absolutely delicious.
And, really, it’s much better for my own waistline if we don’t make having the Méditerranée yogurt in the fridge a regular thing.
