Tamar Valley DairyTM welcomes an Australian first – a range of all-natural Greek yoghurts designed especially for kids. What’s more exciting for mums wanting to ensure healthy, natural food for their kids, Tamar Valley Kids All Natural Greek Yoghurt has no sugar added.
Packed in a handy one-twist cap there are three flavours in the range – Strawberry Vanilla, and Tropical.
Tamar Valley DairyTM philosophy is simple. Great ingredients that need very little done to them. And these new yoghurts for kids are no exception. They are crafted with care using only premium ingredients. This includes the milk, which is sourced from only a handful of local farms in the Tamar Valley region. Pure, simple and delicious!
Accredited Practising Dietitian Sharon Natoli from Food & Nutrition Australia is excited about the new kids yoghurts. “Latest research* suggests that half of kids aged 2-3 years eat too much sugar, with 70-80% of this coming from added sugars, so it’s great to see a no sugar added Greek yoghurt option for kids of this age group. At this age, kids are still developing their taste preferences and experimenting with different foods, so offering a product with a lower level of sweetness has the potential to set them up for better eating habits later in life by adjusting their taste for sweetness downwards,” she explained.
Perfect for kids’ lunch-boxes or as an essential healthy on the go snack, the pouches are child-friendly and squeezable. What’s even better is that each pouch includes a space to write in your child’s name so his or her yoghurt won’t get misplaced at school or day-care, another Australian first thanks to Tamar Valley Dairy!
With no sugar added, parents can feel confident about the goodness and nutrition they are providing to their children. The pouches can also be frozen for the lunch-box for a natural and healthy snack! It really is yoghurt the way it’s meant to be - with a genuine difference you can taste.
“Kids aged 2-3 years need at least 1 1⁄2 serves of dairy foods daily to provide the nutrition they need to support growth and development, in particular for healthy bones, muscles, teeth and gums. One Tamar Valley kids yoghurt provides half a serve of dairy, giving young kids a good start toward meeting their daily dairy requirements”. Sharon added.
Each 110g pouch is sold separately and is available now from Coles and Woolworths as well as some independent retailers RRP $1.69
