Fun Facts

  1. Many toddlers love yogurt melts or bites because they are sweet and creamy treats they can pick up with their little fingers and feed themselves, fostering their sense of independence. Moms tend to like the fact that yogurt snacks melt in the baby’s mouth, reducing any likelihood of choking.
  2. Commercially prepared yogurt melts and bites are made up of nearly 100 percent freeze-dried yogurt and pureed fruit, fortified with essential vitamins and minerals.
  3. Begin by pureeing 2 cups of your baby’s favorite fruits in a blender or food processor. Tasty combinations include strawberry and banana, apricots and pear, pears and peeled apples, or mixed blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. Fresh fruit is preferable, but you can use canned fruit in fruit juice or water.
  4. Line cookie sheets with parchment or wax paper. You will want to make the yogurt melts in big batches and then store, so line two or three sheets before proceeding. The yogurt melts tend to get gobbled up rather quickly, so plan ahead and prepare more than you initially thought you would need.
