Refrigerated Stonyfield Yogurt Gets Pouched
Londonderry, N.H.-based Stonyfield introduces a range of yogurt pouches to meet the nutritional needs of its youngest consumers. Unlike pouch yogurt products in the market that are sold at ambient temperature, these pouches require refrigeration to keep the probiotic cultures alive and thriving.
Once baby turns six months, parents are encouraged to introduce them to YoBaby, which is whole milk yogurt enhanced with fish oil-sourced DHA and EPA, omega-3 fatty acids associated with brain development. YoBaby comes in 3.4-oz. pouches in four varieties: Blueberry, Mango, Sweet Potato and Vanilla. Each pouch contains 100 calories and 3g of fat.
YoToddler has a similar formulation and comes in slightly larger 3.7-oz. pouches. The formulations (Pear Spinach Mango and Strawberry Beet Raspberry) are designed to introduce little ones to new foods and flavors. Each pouch contains 110-120 calories, depending on variety, and 3.5g of fat.
Once kids learn to say yuck, it’s back to the basics with YoKids, which is low-fat yogurt without omega-3 fatty acids in three simple varieties: Blueberry, Strawberry and Strawberry Banana. Each 3.7-oz. pouch contains 110 calories and 2g of fat. All of the yogurts are fortified with vitamin D.
The pouches are sold individually as well as in four packs. The suggested retail price is $1.49 and $4.99, respectively.
