Not harmful: They may have misunderstood the pediatricians recommendation to feed babies either breastmilk or formula for at least a year, and not start whole milk until after a year. An occasional yogurt does not hurt, just don't count on it as a main source of milk protein.

Avoid the fruit puree at this early age--products like yo-baby may be fine in occasional usage.
