My first product review!

Jordan is 6 months old now. I am still breastfeeding him and plan to do so until he's a year old, but I've also started giving him baby food. He's sampled a lot of fruits and veggies and seems to prefer the veggies, and he wants absolutely nothing to do with the baby food meats. (Can you blame him? That stuff is like canned cat food!)
Yesterday, I gave Jordan his first yogurt. I bought a multipack of YoBaby Plus fruit and cereal yogurt in Strawberry Banana and Raspberry Pear flavors, and from the first bite, Jordan couldn't get enough of it. He chowed the whole container in record time.
I love YoBaby products for a lot of reasons. First, they're organic. My little one hasn't had anything junky in his body and I'd like to keep it that way for as long as possible. I recognize everything on the ingredient list and feel good about feeding it to him.
YoBaby Plus yogurts have protein, fruit and cereal, so it's like a complete meal in one cup. Not only that, it has DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid that is vital for visual and central nervous system development during the first two years of life. Studies suggest that infants who take in DHA have higher IQs and better visual skills. I like to think I am helping grow his body and mind the best way possible by feeding him the best foods, especially organic foods.
I am hoping that by exposing Jordan to good things like yogurt now, I will help encourage him to eat healthy meals and snacks for a lifetime.
I'm pretty excited, too, because Stonyfield Farms is coming out with a new YoBaby product called YoBaby Meals, which is a 3-in-1 organic combination of yogurt, fruit and vegetable puree in one cup. I wasn't able to find them in my local stores yet, but I'm going to keep looking. The flavors sound interesting, too. There's Apple & Sweet Potatoes, Peaches & Squash and Pear & Green Beans. I hope Jordan likes those, too. What an easy way to get a nutritious meal into your kid!

I am also excited to announce that I will be doing a YoBaby giveaway during the first week of September. Keep reading this blog for entry instructions. Thanks!

I'm commenting in my own blog. Big dork. WHY ARE THE BABIES BLUE on the YoBaby photo? How odd!
