Londonderry, N.H.-based Stonyfield Farm’s YoBaby turns 10 this year, and marks the occasion by growing its line to include new YoBaby Meals. Debuting on July 1, YoBaby Meals offer a unique three-in-one combination of protein-packed yogurt, fruit and veggie purée in one cup. They’re an easy, delicious and surprising way to help moms give their babies and toddlers a trio of important food groups at every meal.
All YoBaby products contain six live active cultures. In addition to the two cultures needed to make yogurt Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus, Stonyfield adds four additional strains of probiotic cultures: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidus, Lactobacillus casei and Lactobacillus rhamnosus.
Available in three varieties - Pear & Green Bean, Peach & Squash and Apple & Sweet Potato - each single-serve 6-ounce cup offers 50% more than current 4-ounce YoBaby multipacks. Further, YoBaby Meals provide more than 35% of a toddler’s daily protein and calcium needs in one grab-and-go cup.
YoBaby Organic Meals join the YoBaby line of organic yogurts available in a wide range of varieties and flavors, and now including vitamin D and zinc. Suggested retail price is $1.29 for a single 6-ounce serving.
“We were inspired to create YoBaby based on experiences with our own little yogurt-eaters,” says Stonyfield Farm President and CE-Yo Gary Hirshberg. “Today, we know more about nutrition, and we know the benefits of zinc and vitamin D - so your yogurt-lovers will grow up strong and happy.
“You'll also notice our new packaging reflects this ‘new’ YoBaby,” he adds. “Not only are the new graphics and baby images fun and eye-catching, the materials we’ve used on the top of the pack save more than 17,000 pounds of waste a year.” The cover copy is also bilingual, including key messages in Spanish, a first for the baby yogurt market.
