08 Aug Coconut Yoghurt
Yoghurt is often marketed as a healthy food, however, the sugar and flavourings added to many yoghurts can make them more like a junk food. Dairy-free yoghurts such as coconut yoghurt have become popular because they are plant-based. These are ideal choices for vegans and children with lactose intolerance.

Its subtle flavour, gives a tasty twist to desserts too such as cookies, cakes and puddings plus dairy-free ice cream.
Allergic reactions to coconuts is uncommon. However, if your child is allergic to tree nuts such as almonds, cashews, pecan or walnuts they may also react to coconuts and coconut products such as coconut cream.
