Found 16th Jul 2014
My 3 year old loves the muller corner crunch milk chocolate balls yoghurt. He currently has a minimum of 2 a day and around 14 a week equalling about 30quid a month in yoghurts.

Thanks

difficult to wean children off their favourite food. you could give him one a day and the second replace with a cheaper yoghurt.

Wean him off sugar generally then he'll find them too sweet-avoid low-fat alternatives which don't make you full & are loaded with sugar, and buy larger pots of yoghurt (Asda do 1l ones, two for £2) and add a side of chocolate cereal perhaps? That said, kids cereal/snacks like this are generally about the worst thing he can eat, bar Sugar Puffs!

Could you not maybe buy a cheaper vanilla yoghurt and I'm sure they sell choc balls on the cake baking section or with the ice cream bits and just sprinkle a few on top.

Morrisons do there own version and they are just as nice saving a little but over time will add up

24.6g of sugar per pot x 2 = 10 teaspoons of sugar per day. Forget about the cost and worry about his teeth and health.

I have to agree with Ceres on this one. I am not here to preach to you how to raise your kids but that's a lot of rubbish for someone so young. its bad enough for us and look at how obese the UK population is due to fats and sugars and the amount of increased diabetes. As I said. I am not here to preach but here to tell you about the future dangers. I have two 21 month olds and older children.

That said. Aldi or lidl do a similar yoghurt for half the price and its actually quite nice.

To be fair maybe, but my child isnt fat in the slightest, and has his teeth brushed twice a day. Infact the dentist recently stated that its not often he see's a 3 year olds teeth in quite as good condition as my childs.

I think maybe its to do with the fact he drinks no sodas, or sugary drinks as he only likes water. So I doubt two yoghurts in a day will be the end of the world to him.

that said i'll have a look at the aldi lidl options thanks

Do you really thing that it's good for you just because it has yoghurt in it?

That amount of sugar is way too much (especially since the child will also be getting sugar elsewhere), just because the child is currently OK doesn't make it acceptable. Your setting the child up for future problems.

50g of sugar per day (ie two of these 'yoghurt' based sweets) is the max recommended amount for an adult woman.

Aldi do a really nice strawberry balls one.. and toffee hoops!!

I have just informed social services.
