Wallaby Makes Organic Yogurt for Children
Wallaby Yogurt Co., Napa Valley, Calif., a family-owned producer of organic yogurts, adds two product lines — Wallababy Organic Whole Milk Yogurt for Babies and Joey Organic Lowfat Yogurt for Kids — to its growing range. Both lines are sold in packs of four 4-ounce cups, an ideal size for young appetites.
“Parents who enjoy Wallaby have been asking us to make a whole milk yogurt for their babies for quite some time,” says Ellie Wells, marketing director. Wallababy is made using organic whole milk, as is recommended for babies, and by adding zinc and vitamin D to further meet a baby’s growing needs. It is available in banana or blueberry flavors and suggested for babies ages six months and older.
“For years we’ve also dreamed of launching a line of organic yogurt that’s made especially for kids. Coming up with the name Joey, which is the common name for a young wallaby, was the easy part. Creating the perfect yogurt — low in fat and sugar but full in flavor — took a little longer,” says Claudia Bown, vice president of operations.
Joey is made with Wallaby’s signature Australian-style organic low-fat yogurt and is fortified with vitamin D. Available in grape or strawberry, these carefully selected kid-friendly flavors are blended smooth with just the right amount of sweetness. Joey is recommended for ages two years and older.
