Yum! It's yogurt
You know yogurt is an excellent source of calcium for you. But you might be surprised to learn that it’s also good for your baby. While whole cow’s milk as a beverage is not recommended until after a baby’s first birthday, yogurt with modest amounts of added sweeteners can be introduced after six months, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Introducing yogurt as a nutritious addition to your baby’s diet now will help introduce her to the taste of dairy. It’s one step toward the lifelong inclusion of calcium in her diet.
Nutrition for Sitters
Yogurt can provide key nutrients important for your baby’s growth and development:
- Calcium—essential for building strong bones and healthy teeth.
- Protein—an important building block for your baby’s development. The body uses protein to build body tissues.
- Fat from whole milk—helps support the development of your baby’s brain.
