Can try again later: When trying older babies or toddlers on new foods, a parent should pick foods that are safe, meaning little or no chance of choking. He can feed a little bit to the child, maybe an ounce or two. If nothing strange happens over the course of the day, he is likely fine with the food. If something strange happens with the poop, the child can usually retry the food in a month or two, when older.

Healthy?: If he is healthy otherwise, you need not be concerned. If you don't like the odor of the stool from the yogurt, then you should stop feeding this to him since this is not an essential food.Celiac is related to gluten which is not present in yogurt (unless certain cereal is added).
