Stonyfield yogurt pouches.

I am a fan of organic yogurt for my boys and have long purchased Stonyfield Organic products for them. They love the squeezers for lunch boxes, and I get the quarts for them to eat by the bowlful at home. Sometimes, when I'm feeling zany, I buy the little smoothie bottles. Man, oh man, do they love it when I do.

Now, they want the pouches. I was given the opportunity to try out Stonyfield Organics new yogurt pouches and the boys really dig 'em!

We tried all three kinds of the pouches, the YoBaby, YoToddler and YoKid yogurts. My 6-year old wanted nothing to do with the YoBaby yogurts because, after all, he's not a baby, but I forced him to try one, just to help me out. 

Turns out, even 6-year olds enjoy the YoBaby yogurt! The boys tried the blueberry YoBaby, the strawberry-beet-berry YoToddler, and the blueberry YoKid.

And my 3-year old with his strawberry-beet-berry YoToddle pouch.

I believe in organic dairy so these are a big win. I can see buying these for over the summer when we are out and about a lot -- they'd be perfect for bringing to the park or wherever. The pouches have caps so if my boys don't eat the whole thing at once (OK, that's unlikely), they can re-close the pouch and save it for later.

The other thing that I believe in is avoiding high fructose corn syrup and GMOs. Stonyfield Organic is certified organic -- and they don't use HFCS or GMOs. You can read more about what certified organic means at Stonyfield Organic on their site

The pouches that I bought were $1.49 at my local Price Chopper and $1.29 at my local Hannaford (yeah, go buy them at Hannaford!). You can find out where to buy the pouches by visiting the online locator

Overall, I give the pouches the thumbs-up. I'll definitely be buying more!

YoYummy!

Recently, I was invited to try out YoYummy, a new yogurt for kids. Now, I don't really eat yogurt -- the whole Paleo diet thing -- but my kids? Well, my kids love yogurt. They enjoy squeezers, yogurt in those little cups and regular yogurt mixed with fruit or jelly. They love it all!

So, it is fitting that they enjoyed the YoYummy yogurts.


The yogurt comes in cute little squeezable packages, with caps so you can easily re-close them. I really liked this feature but I also realize that this adds to the packaging and to what ultimately ends up in the landfill. It is nice to have the option to close up a half-eaten yogurt and save it for later!

 

YoYummy comes in four flavors: Mixed Berry, Strawberry Banana, Strawberry, and Cotton Candy. Cotton Candy was the fastest to go in this house, followed by Mixed Berry. Actually, the boys were really psyched to eat the cotton candy flavor. It was a huge treat for them.

Overall, my kids liked YoYummy and I think it is a good product. As a believer in organics (especially organic dairy), I wish they had an organic option, but maybe that will come at some point.

Here is some more information about YoYummy:
  • YoYummy yogurt is made with Grade-A rBST-free Vermont milk, is a good source of calcium, and is rich in vitamin A and D.
  • It has 10 percent less sugar than the leading national brand kids’ yogurt. Real fruits and berries add just enough natural sugar to YoYummy yogurt to make it taste sweet.
  • YoYummy is free of high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, additives, and preservatives. YoYummy is naturally gluten free.
  • YoYummy is available at Wegman’s, Costco, Hannaford, Stew Leonard’s, Fresh & Easy, and Sprout’s Farmer Markets.
  • The retail price for YoYummy is $4.99 for a 4-pack, $9.99 for a 12-pack, and $1.29 for single pouches.

And check out their website for coupons and special offers!
