Organic Baby Yogurt 101

Why organic baby yogurt?

The fact that you found yourself to this article shows that you truly care about what you put in your child. Buying an organic baby yogurt certifies that no hormones or antibiotics were used. Many conventional, mainstream yogurts contain synthetic preservatives, artificial flavors, and high fructose corn syrup. All things that we should avoid in diets, especially for our sensitive young ones.

When can babies start eating yogurt?

Babies can start eating foods at around 6 months, but you should consult your pediatrician to confirm when YOUR baby is ready to be introduced to foods. When your doctor does say it is go time, just make sure your baby is wearing an organic bib, because things can and will get messy.

Is yogurt good for a baby’s first food?

Yogurt is a milk product and one of the most common food allergies is milk. Nearly 5% of kids under 5 have a food allergy. If you have a family history of milk allergies, be especially careful. Allergic reactions to look for when introducing your child to organic baby yogurt are:

  • Rash around the mouth
  • Swelling
  • Fussiness
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Itching

Greek vs Plain Yogurt

Both are made from the same ingredients, but differ slightly on the way they are processed and the nutritional value. Greek yogurt is strained 3 times, making it thicker and more rich in protein. Greek yogurt also has less sugar and less lactose, which makes it easier to digest for some.

Regular yogurt usually has more calcium and fewer calories. So which organic yogurt is better for your baby? There is no conclusive answer. It is a matter of preference and both are very healthy and nutritious. Greek yogurt tends to be a bit more sour, but there are ways we can make the plain yogurt more diverse and exciting for our babies.

How to make plain organic baby yogurt more tasty

Getting babies to eat can be exhausting at first. The process can go much smoother if the baby actually enjoys the taste of the food. What flavors will our babies like? The only way to find this out is by trial and error. There are so many ways you can go with dressing up the yogurt with different flavors.

Just make sure you DON’T USE HONEY for the first year, as it contains a bacteria that can produce a toxin in your babies intestine, causing botulism. Also make sure, especially at first, that there aren’t any big chunks in the yogurt, as babies haven’t acquired the ability to chew yet.

Here are a few ideas on how to make the organic baby yogurt more tasty:

  • Applesauce
  • Avocado
  • Mashed banana with a bit of cinnamon
  • Peanut butter (as long as you don’t have a family history of peanut allergies)
  • Cocoa powder
  • Fresh juice
  • Mashed pumpkin
  • Steamed and mashed carrots

There is no wrong answer, besides honey, so have fun with it. There are many yogurts with different flavors and fruits already added, some of which are marketed for babies. Be cautious of these, as they often have extra preservatives and sweeteners.

We have covered the basics you need to know about organic baby yogurts, so lets jump right into the list.

Organic Baby Yogurts

Straus Organic Greek Yogurt

Straus Organic Greek yogurt.

We start out our best organic baby yogurt list with a company whos innovations might change the game in dairy farming. Straus company partnered with seaweed supplement maker Blue Ocean Barns, to develop a climate change solution.

Cattle are the biggest agricultural source of greenhouse gases worldwide. Each year, a single cow will belch about 220 pounds of methane. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas with a warming potential more than 80 times that of carbon dioxide (CO2).

They found that if a cow’s diet is supplemented with a specific type of red seaweed, it can reduce their enteric methane emissions by up to 95%. Enteric methane emissions is a fancy term for cow burps. There methane reduction doesn’t stop with cow belches.

The Straus Farms are equipped with bio-digesters that reduce manure methane emissions by 90% and offsets additional greenhouse gas emissions by replacing grid electricity with farm-generated electricity.

They are on track to meet their goal of carbon neutral dairy farming by 2023. They aim to eliminate fossil fuel use by converting all farm equipment to electric. This USDA organic, California Certified Organic Farmers, also happens to produce great tasting yogurts, as evident by its average customer review of 4.8 out of 5.

Straus is climate pledge friendly and a member of the California Green Business Network. They are one of the few companies that have actually came up with meaningful solutions to climate change and that is why they sit at the top of our best organic baby yogurt list.

Nancy’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt

Nancy's Organic Baby Yogurt made with whole milk

Nancy’ Organic has been supporting sustainable farming before it was fashionable, so we had to include them on our best organic baby yogurt list. They are climate pledge friendly and USDA organic. They have a number of green business practices.

Even though their creamery is in Oregon, they have solar panels because contrary to popular belief, solar panels can generate a lot of energy even in places that don’t have year round sunshine.

Their containers are durable and BPA-free. They started the term “Nancy’s ware” to encourage customers to repurpose the containers and they have seen some creative results like popcorn tubs and birdhouses.

They have a full in house recycling program and organize community recycling events. At just $.19 per ounce and an average customer review of 4.7, Nancy’s presents a great value for those in the market for an amazing organic baby yogurt.

  • Ingredients: Pasteurized Organic Whole Milk, Organic Nonfat Dry Milk, Live Probiotic Cultures (Bifidobacterium Lactis Bb-12®, L. Acidophilus La-5®, L. Casei, L. Rhamnosus Lb3), Live Yogurt Cultures (L. Bulgaricus, S. Thermophilus).

Stonyfield Organic 100% Grass Fed Greek Yogurt

Stonyfield Greek 100% Grass fed Organic baby yogurt.

Stonyfield organic Greek yogurt is the first 100% grass fed on our best organic baby yogurt list. Grass fed cows produce milk higher in omega 3 than corn and grain fed cows. Stonyfield is a Certified B Corp and climate pledge friendly. At $.35 per ounce, this is the most expensive yogurt on our best organic baby yogurt list, but it is also tied for the highest rated customer reviews at an average score of 4.8 out of 5.

If you value affordability when selecting your organic baby yogurt, Stonyfield also makes a highly regarded organic, whole milk yogurt that only costs $.17 per ounce. They also have organic baby yogurt pouches, marketed for babies. We choose not to include this on our list because the second ingredient is organic cane sugar.

We like to stay away from products that use extra sugar and would prefer to get natural sweetness by adding bananas or other fruits. The ingredients for this yogurt are as natural as it gets with just 1 ingredient, Cultured Pasteurized Grass fed Organic Whole Milk.

Wallaby Organic Greek Yogurt

Wallaby Aussie Greek style whole milk organic yogurt.

Wallaby organic Aussie Greek style yogurt is next on our organic baby yogurt list. At just $.17 per ounce, it is offers a fantastic value. Wallaby is owned by Danone North America, which is the largest Certified B Corp in the world. They own many other well known brands such as silk, dannon and activia.

They are a public benefit corporation that has focused much of its efforts on regenerative agriculture. They have soil health initiative that are finding ways to lock more carbon in the ground and help fight climate change.

Ingredients: Cultured Pasteurized Whole Organic Milk

365 Organic Whole Milk Yogurt

365 whole foods market plain organic yogurt.

365 Organic yogurt is the most affordable on our best organic baby yogurt list at just $.14 per ounce. They didn’t have to sacrifice quality to produce at such a low cost, as evident in its 4.7 customer review average. 365 is the whole foods label for products that they produce in house. Whole Foods was bought by Amazon in 2017. It’s easy to produce at a lower cost than your competitors when you have economies of scale and own the entire supply chain.

Although they are owned by one of the largest corporations in the world, which instantly brings thoughts of top hat wearing tycoons spilling oil in streams while cackling, they have many green business practices and social initiatives they support.

For starters, Whole foods has banned plastic grocery bags and straws. That is an easy step that every grocer should take in my opinion. They have equipped many of their buildings with solar panels and made them more energy efficient in order to use less power, reducing carbon emissions.

They have programs to encourage regenerative agriculture and to protect the bees, which are vital to our ecosystem and disappearing at an alarming rate. Whole foods doesn’t stop their efforts to make the world a better place at the environment, they also support a number of social programs.

Their Whole Planet foundation is a lending program to alleviate poverty in countries where they source products. The Whole Cities foundation Expands access to nutritious food for communities through local partnerships and education programs. The whole kids foundation Inspires kids and families to eat nutritiously through cooking and nutrition education and grants to schools.

The most affordable product on our best organic baby yogurt list also gives back to the environment and society in many ways. If you can get past the fact that you are giving your hard earned money to one of the biggest corporations in the world, that is responsible for many mom and pop stores and producers to going out of business, then 365 brand is a great value.


Maple Hill Organic Cream On Top Yogurt

Maple Hill 100% Grass fed, cream on top, organic yogurt.

Maple Hill Organic is the second 100% grass fed and the first cream on top yogurt on our best organic baby yogurt list. What does “cream on top” yogurt mean you might wonder, it just means the yogurt has been spared the industrial process of homogenization, so some of the fat will naturally rise to the top.

As mentioned previously, 100% grass fed cows produce milk richer in omega-3’s and organic milk is also higher in omega-3’s, so this organic baby yogurt is packing quite the omega-3 punch. Maple Hill prides itself on their grass-fed movement and claim to be America’s original 100% grass fed organic dairy.

Although we love their grass-fed, organic approach, it should be mentioned that we were unable to find any green or social initiatives that they support at this time.

  • Ingredients: Organic Non-homogenized Whole Milk, Live And Active Cultures. (B. Lactis, L. Acidophilus, L. Delbruecki Subsp. Bulgaricus. S. Thermophilus)
