Opa!

It is no secret the ups and downs we have with Maddie’s eating…so as I was meandering through the grocery store looking for alternatives for healthy foods conductive to Maddie's esophagus…I came across…CHOBANI…Greek Yogurt…and it is YUM!! Maddie LOVES it…she could eat it for every meal…the great thing about the yogurt…in a 6 oz serving 14g of protein, 20% calcium…so good…it is a little high in sugar…but nothing to worry about…and it is allowing a choke free encounter and she likes LOVES it! on Friday she choked through her shredded mashed salmon and soup dinner then the biggest case of indigestion I have ever had the pleasure of smelling…literally the smell of her stomach acid was seeping through her body…so sad…so unnecessary…then on Saturday morning I was letting her self feed bits of squished banana and she constricted her airway severely…so it was chix broth for the rest of the day...I realized it was time to change up and start being proactive by trying anything and everything so she she does not choke…and help eliminate sum of her indigestion…so currently she is still eating pureed veggies…CHOBANI and introduction of sum kind of soft mushy mild food to help with her chewing…Maddie so wants to eat what we are eating…the CHOBANI helps me give her a healthy filling alternative and some of what we are munching on…

  1. I can't imagine what you (and Maddie) must go through on a daily basis. I'm so glad you found this and that she loves it! I wouldn't worry about the sugar content I'm pretty sure the protein and calcium cancel it out!

  2. Aww, poor Maddie...That would be very frustrating! I have never heard of greek yogurt before, I'm gonna try to find some and check it out :)

  3. It is great you found that yogurt. It is hard to imagine dealing with those feeding issuers...

    Oh, also wanted to mention from your last post how incredibly cute she was in those glasses. Even if she does not need them, they are so adorable. :)

  4. I know it must be so frustrating. Greek yogurt is so good for you though and it's wonderful that she likes it! I've been eating a cup everyday and I love it too ;)

  5. Great idea! Arina has been choking lately on foods. She freaks me out. She always gets it down ok in the end, but there's been a couple times of turning her upside down and pounding her back!

  6. Claire loves her yogurt too! I switch between the greek and stonyfield organic. I hope Maddie's choking/feeding issues get better!
