I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stonyfield. I received coupons to facilitate my shopping trip and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
We love Stonyfield products! We’ve been enjoying them since our first started eating solids, because I feel like the more organic foods the kids eat, the better. We love our yogurt around here, so when we got the chance to try Stonyfields new line of yogurt pouches, we we so excited!
Stonyfield YoBaby, YoToddler, and YoKids Pouches are the first refrigerated organic yogurt pouch available. All of the Stonyfield organic yogurt pouches contain pure organic ingredients and never any high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors. They come in lots of different flavors!
These products are brand new, so we had a little difficulty finding them in stores in our area. I did finally find the single pouches at Kroger. They come in 4 packs at Target.
We purchased a 4 pack of each version for our review: YoBaby Mango, YoToddler Strawberry-Beet-Berry, and YoKids Strawberry Banana. My first thoughts about these pouches were that this is an excellent idea! My kids love yogurt, and these are much easier to handle than the tubes of yogurt that you find on the shelves. My 4 year old has trouble getting everything out of the tubes, but he handled these pouches like a champ.
The yogurt is very tasty, as you would expect from Stonyfield. Each flavor smelled and tasted delicious, although the YoKids version smelled very sugary. My kids especially loved the Strawberry/Banana version.
After trying each type with both of my kids, I’ve got mixed feelings. While the concept is great, I feel like the execution is a bit lacking. My daughter goes through a lot of baby food pouches, so we’re very familiar with the feel of a food pouch, and how much pressure is needed to get the product on a spoon. These containers are very flimsy, and feel very thin to the touch. Almost like it could be punctured easily if in a cooler with other items. They are much thinner than other baby food pouches.
Second, while my kids (ages 4 & almost 2) ate all three versions, I don’t know any 6 month old baby that can handle a pouch on their own. My almost 2 year old daughter can’t; we have to dispense pouch food onto a spoon for her. The consistency of the yogurt is fairly runny across all the versions. Much more so than the regular YoBaby/Toddler/Kids yogurts in the cups that we’re used to. If you’re spoon feeding, you have to be very careful not to make a mess, as the thin liquid comes out of the flimsy pouch very fast. I tried to shake them before feeding her, to make it less watery, but the consistency was basically the same. The YoToddler seemed to be the thickest of the three versions, but even it wasn’t that thick.
Overall, these are great snacks for on-the-go, as long as your kid can eat them alone without making a huge mess. If you’re spoon feeding, I suggest keeping these for an at-home treat, and being very careful (or use a deep spoon)!
Stonyfield Yogurt Pouches can be found at stores like Target, Kroger, Whole Foods, and Safeway. They retail for $1.49-1.59 per pouch. Check here to see if the pouches are sold at a store near you!
