Yogurt is probably the most common first food worldwide. It is highly nutritious being full of calcium, protein, and healthy fats, which help to develop your baby’s brain cells. Probiotics found in yogurt also work to create a strong microbiome, microorganisms working together to protect and regulate the body’s functions.
While any type of yogurt is good, Greek yogurt tends to be a better choice. It is made by straining out extra whey to make it thicker and creamier, making it more of a “solid” to introduce to your little one. It also tends to be lower in sugar and higher in protein due to its concentrated state.
