I’m excited to have been one of the people to join the YMC testing panel and try out Liberté baby, a brand new yogurt line for wee ones. My son is 9 months old and I was planning to introduce dairy now, so this worked out perfectly!
The first flavour, or Step 1, is plain yogurt. The box says it is lightly sweetened. This is the one we tried first, as it specifies this one is for ages 9 months plus.
He wasn’t sure if he liked it or not. The texture is super creamy – that part I don’t think he minded. But it is plain yogurt and though it is ever so slightly seasoned, it’s still quite tart. I tried it myself and loved it, but I really enjoy plain yogurt. The creamy consistency is fantastic; I would eat this yogurt myself.
The Step 2 notes that it is for 12 months plus, but I allowed him to taste it anyways. This one was banana flavoured and, at first, received the same – I think the texture was new and interesting. Cold, creamy, thick… a little different from warm pureed yams or crunchy puffs! With this flavour he asked for more and ate several spoonfuls happily. Clear sweet tooth, this kid. Just like his Mummy. It’s a nice, subtle banana taste. Too many banana flavoured foods taste like sickly banana marshmallow candies – yeeeeuck! This is refreshing.
At $2.69 for a 4 pack where I purchased it, this is decently priced. Each container is a good portion, maybe even a little too much for my 9 month old at this point. I think we will buy this again in a few more weeks and give it another go.
I found Liberté baby at Planet Organic in Coquitlam. Apparently it is available at several Walmart locations through the Lower Mainland.
