A homemade yogurt has same health benefits as what available in thr market? Will homemade yogurt has lesser probiotic?
Depends: To be considered "probiotic" the yogurt has to have active cultures (of beneficial bacteria). In the store, a product can say it, but it does not mean it has to have any, or what type.

The main reasons to delay foods are if they 1) are a choking hazard (like peanuts), 2) might cause an infection (like honey or raw eggs), 3) contain questionable ingredients (such as artificial colors), or 4) aren't good foods that you want kids to learn to love (such as soda or french fries). ...Read more
