I recently came across a delicious yogurt brand that I can likely be a spokesperson for since I can’t stop telling everyone I speak to about it. It’s called Tree Island Gourmet Yogurt and I can’t express how tasty it is and how great it feels to feed Alex high quality, grass-fed yogurt. After reading their valued principles and story, as well as trying their high-quality product, I’ve replaced my yogurt brand to theirs!
Alex gets some sort of yogurt snack or what I like to call a dairy bowl daily. I know that it is high in protein and rich in calcium which is important for his growing bones. The one thing to watch for is the sugar content in the flavored varieties. I like to buy plain whole milk yogurt and add in fresh fruit to sweeten it to his liking. I also enjoy that it is quick to put together for breakfast or between meals so it’s great for those rushed mornings or on-the-go snacks.
The following is a delicious yogurt bowl that really can be mixed with any fruits of your choosing but I and Alex both love this combination. It is also great to use locally grown, in-season fruits so we use a variety throughout the year - we have delicious nectarines and peaches in season right now, so it’s the star of the show.
