Rachel’s First Yogurts for babies

29-6-13 - eating Rachel's yoghurt 4BYogurt, such a satisfying snack for babies.  There’s no questioning the best way for a toddler to eat from his very first pot of baby yogurt. By the fistful into his mouth, splashes of yogurt up his nose and smeared through his hair by the end!29-6-13 - eating Rachel's yoghurt_close up 4B

E’s not had a small pot of yogurt to himself before.  We buy family size pots of plain Greek Yogurt generally as yogurts marketed to children tend to be loaded with artificial sweeteners if not some form of sugar itself.  I hadn’t realised Rachel’s have a baby friendly sugar free range of fruit yogurts until they contacted me to see if E, Chief Taster Extraordinaire, was available to try them.

My First yoghurts are the closest baby yogurt product we’ve found to what we were creating in our own kitchen.  Made with organic whole milk, sweetened with fruit juice with puree mixed in and no hidden junk in the form of colours or flavourings – baby gets a healthy, nutritious, tasty snack while Mum gets 10 minutes to sort out the shopping/wash up/read some blogs etc.  Granted it’s messy letting babies and toddlers loose on yogurt but food is to be enjoyed isn’t it?Collage - Rachel's first yoghurts 4B

It wasn’t all fists and fingers as you can see.  G and I snuck a taste from E’s pot as well (Billy cat tried and failed) and we were pleasantly surprised at just how lovely they tasted – fresh and fruity with just the right balance of sweetness and creaminess and none of the sickly sweet after taste you can sometimes get from artificially sweetened yogurt.  In fact if Rachel’s produced a family size pot of this yoghurt I don’t think we’d buy any other brand again.  One small pot of yoghurt is rarely enough, it would reduce our food bill upsizing as well as the amount of packaging to recycle and most importantly would help parents make healthier food choices too.  G is the first to admit that he has a cheeky sweet tooth and reaching for the fruit yoghurt is the lesser of two evils when it comes to hankering after chocolate to satisfy his sweet cravings.  He would be one very satisfied customer if My First yogurts came in Daddy sized pots!

Disclosure: I was sent free samples of Rachel’s yogurts.

    I don’t think they are available over here and can only agree wholeheartedly with that comment on the sickly sweet aftertaste. I try various brands from time to time but have not as yet found one that I can stay with!
    E looks to be thoroughly enjoying his new position as food taster!

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
