I am starting to wean my 12 month old off of bottles (formula) and am looking for some healthy snack ideas. Also what types of yogurt do you all recommend?

A nice transisitonal food might be baby food in a sili squeeze. It is like those disposable pouches you see in the grocery store, but you can put your own healthy home made food in there, or cheaper store bought stuff.

I give my kids lots of fruit sliced up and vegetables. They LOVE cheerios, crackers, toast, or tortillas.

As for yougart. You can make your own, which will help your little one not become addicted to suger. I like to boil my milk in a double bolier until there is a thick cream. Then you can either buy any kind of yougart or cultures from your favorite natural market. You cool the milk to room temperate in an ice bath, add your yougart. Then put in a cool dark place (cabinet) for a day or so. Then, refrigeration.

My daughter is 13 months now and she absolutely loves sliced bananas, cubed avocado, sliced grapes, raspberries, strawberries etc. And for the yogurt I started with the gerber yogurt in the baby aisle but now we have switched to the kid's yoplait brand that has less sugar than the other types.

I give my children (aged 1 and 3) for snacks: cucumber slices, pears, apples, grapes, oranges, bananas, homemade muffins (I make the mini size), crackers and cheese, cookies (occasionally), baby Mum-Mums (they love the apple snacks ones), granola bars, coffee bread, etc. I mix it up with different options, sometimes give 2-3 different choices. My daughter saw a dietician for some weight issues she has from a medical condition and the dietician recommended Greek yoghurts. She said the milk fat and probiotics in them was higher and was more nutritious. It is a bit more expensive though. She also recommended the Source yoghurt or the Lil Ones.

I used to give my little man any type of fruit, which he loved. Toast, cheese and from about 14-15mths, sultanas & dried fruit. He had either vaalia or petit miam yoghurt, both for his age group. (I'm in Australia).
