US-based yoghurt firm Horizon Organic has unveiled three new yoghurt products made especially for babies and toddlers, young children and teens.
The new products - Horizon Organic Whole Milk Baby Yoghurt, Horizon Organic Yo-Yos cup yoghurt and Horizon Organic Yoghurt Tubes - are produced without growth hormones, antibiotics and pesticides.
"As the leader in the organic industry, Horizon Organic is committed to the health and well-being of children by offering delicious organic foods parents can feel good about feeding their kids," said Gwen Scherer, director of marketing for Horizon Organic. "With the addition of these new yoghurts to our line of kid-focused products, Horizon Organic has extended the reach of its yoghurt brand to include all members of the family."
Horizon Organic Whole Milk Baby Yoghurt has been created to provide an organic snack for children one to three years old. The new yoghurt is enhanced with NutraFlora, a natural, soluble fibre and prebiotic that the company claims can aid digestion and improve calcium absorption.
The yoghurt is available in two multi-packs: peach and vanilla, and pear and vanilla.
Yo-Yos yoghurt cups are aimed at children up to 8 years old. Produced with organic fruit and 1 per cent organic low-fat milk, Yo-Yos are available in two flavours: Soaring Strawberry and Screaming Orange-Cream. Yo-Yos also contain NutraFlora.
Yoghurt Tubes is designed to be a portable, and convenient organic yoghurt product. The product is available in 1.5 per cent low-fat strawberry, orange-cream and blueberry flavours.
Each of the new yoghurt products is certified organic in accordance with USDA regulations. In addition, Horizon Organic yoghurts do not contain preservatives, artificial colours or artificial flavours. The new kids' line of yoghurts will be on the shelves of supermarkets and natural food stores later this year.
