When Little Boo was very wee, Li'L Ones was our yogourt of choice. He really enjoyed the flavours, and I really enjoyed the portion size and the health benefits of the DHA - an Omega-3 fatty acid that is critical for proper development of the brain, eyes and nerves. Did you know, Li'L Ones is actually the first yogourt in Canada to have been developed specifically for toddlers?
I appreciated that this yogourt is sweetened with fruit juice and has no artificial colours or flavours, plus it is made with real fruit puree and whole milk. There is lots of goodness in Li'L Ones to provide a healthy start to your toddler's day, or a quick snack after a fun morning of play. With summer here and lots of fun outings to enjoy, portable snacks like Li'L ones (transported in a cooler pack of course) can be a great part of your routine.
Here are some tips from Li'L Ones on introducing yogourt to your toddler:
- Look for yogurts that are naturally sweetened with fruit juice – Li’L Ones® yogurt is a great choice. It is specifically formulated to provide a wholesome, healthy, nutrient-rich snack children love. It is a source of calcium and vitamin D, with no added sugar or fructose.
- Generally, it is best when introducing yogurt to your toddler to opt for familiar flavours like vanilla, banana or apple.
- When looking for healthy yogurt options, try to find a yogurt that contains DHA. Most children’s diets lack sufficient quantities of DHA, which is required for optimal brain and eye development. Pediatricians recommend buying products with DHA to supplement a toddler’s diet. Health Canada has also acknowledged the physiological functions of DHA and has approved DHA-enhanced dairy products for food use in Canada.
