Ice Lolly for Baby
We all enjoy an ice lolly on a hot day. It seems a shame that baby would miss out on such a treat, but when you have a baby you are constantly on the alert for sugar, salt and other hidden nasties. I make Cooper's food, so I can be sure that whatever he eats is pure and good for him. One of the few exceptions is baby yoghurt, which is just sweetened with fruit puree and boy does he love it. So, when my mother-in-law suggested making ice lollies out of baby yoghurt, I thought it was a fabulous idea. It was so simple too. No need for lolly moulds to make these lollies. All you do is slit the lid of the yoghurt pot with a lollypop stick or do what Jean did and use a baby spoon, even easier, then just pop them in the freezer until frozen.
As you will see from the photos, Cooper loved his yoghurt ice lolly.
