I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches. I received coupons to facilitate my shopping trip and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
I don’t have children living in my home any longer, though I’m hoping to have grandchildren in the future. So why then would I be excited about a new product for babies, toddlers, and kids from Stonyfield Organic? It’s because though they’ve marketed them to the younger generation, they’re actually quality products even adults like me can enjoy!
Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches – Nutrition
What is this new product? Stonyfield YoBaby, YoToddler, and YoKids organic yogurt pouches. What makes these better than those squeeze yogurts is that they’re ORGANIC and have no artificial colors or flavors! That means no neon-colored yogurt or flavors like bubblegum. Just pure, natural, and organic ingredients. Plus they’re not sweetened with high fructose corn syrup.
Stonyfield Organic Yogurt Pouches – On the Go Snacking
I love that there’s something on the grocery store shelf that’s actually real food and one I would feel good about feeding to those I love. In fact, I planned to enjoy these myself. While some adults have teased me about the pouch, I say my nutrition comes first, I’ll be darned if I’m going to turn down a quality product because it’s made for babies! If they knew how hard it was for me to find food I’ll eat while on the road, they’d understand. You see I’m 100% vegetarian who eats organic as much as possible, so you can imagine how hard it is to find healthy food choices while traveling.
The next time you go through a fast food restaurant, imagine you’re me and look at how little is available to vegetarians. Even the yogurt aisle in most grocery stores are filled with products that use gelatin instead of the vegetarian-friendly pectin, so there are rarely any I will eat. I was thrilled to imagine myself picking these up for a quick snack or lunch treat on the road or packing them in my purse for a quick pick-me up – no spoon needed!
Sadly for me, the Stonyfield YoBaby and YoToddler Organic have DHA from anchovy and sardine oil. I realized this after I tasted them and while they were truly delicious, I won’t be adding them to my list of snacks. I was completely surprised by the YoTodder Strawberry-Beet-Berry flavor. The beets were well hidden and it was tasty! As someone who HATES beets, that’s a pretty impressive blending of flavors to hide, it while still providing the nutritional benefits the beets add to the yogurt.
Stonyfield YoBaby Organic Yogurt Blueberry Ingredients: CULTURED PASTEURIZED ORGANIC WHOLE MILK, ORGANIC SUGAR, ORGANIC BLUEBERRY PUREE, PECTIN, NATURAL FLAVOR, ORGANIC ELDERBERRY JUICE CONCENTRATE (FOR COLOR), FISH OIL (ANCHOVY OIL, SARDINE OIL: A NATURAL SOURCE OF DHA), ORGANIC CARROT JUICE CONCENTRATE (FOR COLOR), VITAMIN D3.
Thankfully the Stonyfield YoKids Organic Yogurt is DHA-free so I’ll be looking for those soon and they WILL go on my list of treats, snacks, and quick breakfast ideas. Unfortunately our local Safeway store only had the YoBaby and YoToddler versions in stock, so it’ll be a little while before I get a chance to search out the YoKids.

It’s not hard looking at the list of ingredients on these new products to see they’re what we should be feeding ourselves and our kids. Organic whole milk, nothing artificial, and the bonus of Vitamin D3 and DHA for our non-vegetarian friends. Yea, I’m impressed!
If you’ve got kids or you want a quality snack for yourself that can be found in the refrigerator section of grocery stores, check out these new Stonyfield products. I think you’ll find that that they’re delicious, real food, and portable – the perfect snack for on-the-go families.
