Review: St Helen’s farm yoghurt


I was in casual conversation with an experienced mum, mentioning the food habits of my little dragon. I listed the boiled vegetables he had tried, the cooked meats, the simple dishes. Meanwhile my little dragon who was had just turned seven months, was eagerly pulling himself up onto the furniture and desperate attempting to play with my phone. “You are feeding him wrong”, the woman suddenly said, “look at him, he’s so active for his age, he will burn through those calories, you have a little gym goer on your hands, you need to feed him like a mini athlete.” It was true, little dragon had mastered to crawl by six months and was on the way to walking already. He was slim and tall, and never sat still for a second. She threw a few suggestions out there and asked me about yoghurt. “Yogurt?” I asked, but I was breastfeeding, why would he need cows milk. “Not milk, yoghurt.” She advice me that the extra protein would do him some good. 

That was the day I bought my first tub of St Helen’s farm yoghurt. As a ‘green parent’, there is a few things that I look for when feeding my little dragon. 
1. The welfare of the animals and how ethical the company is.
 An absence of added sugar, salts or unnecessary ingredients.
3. Is it of any nutrition value to my little boy.

The reason I went for goat stead of cow is that goat milk is much more similar to that of human milk and easier to digest. 

My little dragon fell in love with it. I can’t feed him quickly enough and the spoon tend to be snatched away. I normally buy a tub of natural yoghurt and add my own flavourings, Dragon likes organic blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Personally as somebody who grew up eating goat cheese, I am quite enjoy the flavour myself and like an adult serving with grated dark chocolate and a few drops of vanilla, it’s pure indulgence.

In case more proof is needed. Num num num.
