Can i give regular activia yogurt to my 8 month old?

Can i give  regular activia yogurt to my 8 month old?

Some people would prefer yobaby or other formulations lower in sugar, but the live cultures in activia tend to be better for gas and constipation (from my experience, not proven in research). And he/she is old enough to begin some healthy table foods, soft and not loaded with salt, sugar etc. ...Read more

R frozen fruits n veggies just as healthy as non frozen? Is activia yogurt healthy as they say on tv?

R frozen fruits n veggies just as healthy as non frozen? Is activia yogurt healthy as they say on tv?

The experts disagree: mostly there is a small (20-50%) decline in vitamins in frozen versus the very freshest fruits/vegetables (but fiber is unchanged and that's much higher than NOT eating fruit/vegetables). The bacteria / helpful microorganisms in probiotics are HARD to study and HARD to keep alive. The studies vary on whether the probiotics can live all the way to the colon. ...Read more
