It's all About the Yogurt


I’ve spent the last few months paying extra close attention to what and how Vivi eats thanks to this campaign sponsored by YoBaby. I’ve noticed she swallows food whole on occasion, throws things on the floor, and I learned the best way to use up all those leftover frozen cubes of baby food. I even learned that perhaps I was eating a little too fast and that I needed to slow it down. In the end, it comes down to putting really good stuff into the baby to get really good stuff out of her later on (Well, I mean, it comes out pretty gross. I’m really talking about laying the foundation for an open mind and willingness to try new things.)

Having this baby around has changed which restaurants we choose, what I order once we’re there and how I grocery shop.

I can’t lie, I have a soft spot for foods I know my baby will eat without issue. Especially as we come closer and closer to her eating nothing but solid foods and dropping formula altogether. Avocado, scrambled eggs, peas, cottage cheese, banana and of course, yogurt. While I’ll continue to introduce her to new foods (fish tonight!) it’s nice to know there’s old reliables to fall back on when the schedule gets hectic, I get sick or the grocery store is a pipe dream away.

It’s always been a little strange to me knowing that there are living things in my yogurt, but I know how I feel after I eat yogurt, I know that things *ehem* move along better so that we can get all those probiotics enveloped in tasty, tasty, organic yogurt? I say win win!

What are your baby’s foolproof foods?
