Oh jeez. Baby yogurt is just yogurt with loads of sugar. Well, it's probably got less sugar than some brands of yogurt but its got tons more than the brands we buy. I find that disturbing. Teagan gets what we buy. It's Straus European Style organic whole milk yogurt. She likes cinnamon and pomegranate/blueberry. I tried giving her plain yogurt but she wouldn't eat it. I won't eat it either so I don't blame her.
That's great! DS isn't so fond of broccoli, but I keep giving it to him. lol.
DS finally decided he loves the organic puffs I bought back in April. I'm going to buy a bunch when we're home later this month since I can't buy them here. He also loves Cheerios, but I'm not so fond of giving him that with the sugar and salt.
Aiden can only do bigger pieces. He just this past week was able to get something smaller like a puff into his mouth. Right now I'm trying to get him to learn to not shove 10 of them in there at once.
Gagging isn't necessarily bad though. Aiden gagged once on a cheerio and after that, he's a lot more cautious before swallowing! It's a unique learning process. And I definitely understand why some aren't ready for it yet.
I think Ronin will get milk arrowroot biscuits soon, once he finishes off the packet of rusks we have. They are almost a staple of a baby's childhood here, tastier than teething rusks and one a day isn't so bad. I'm also going to start on vegemite sandwhiches for him, again a staple of childhood here.
I tried something new tonight, an apple jelly. To me it didn't have much flavour (might be I used apple juice instead of apple concentrate, but I couldn't find any concentrate) but Ronin loved it. I'm thinking of trying a yoghurt jelly next week. I'm loving trying out some of the recipes from my babyfood cook books.
