When can I Feed My Baby Cheese and Yogurt?

Based on The Baby’s Table, from 9 to 12 month, it is a sensible time to introduce calcium-rich dairy products, such as yogurt and cheese. Introducing them earlier than 9 month may increase the risk of gastrointestinal bleeding. Cow’s milk for drinking should be postponed until 12 months.

What type of cheese and yogurt can a 9 months old baby eat?

All cheese must be pasteurized. Cheddar, mozzarella, Edam, Gouda and cottage cheese tend to be popular with babies.

To avoid the additives found in many commercial yogurts, choose a plain high-fat yogurt (any yogurt above 3% milk fat) and mix it with your baby’s favorite fruit or vegetable puree.
