Natural greek yoghurt or natural live yoghurt is best.

 

They have no sugar or flavourings and the probiotics in the live yoghurt can be good for them.

 

I avoid anything that says low fat or low sugar as sometimes they have other hidden nasties in them.

Mine love some organic muesli mixed with a spoonful of natural yoghurt - they get it at the weekend as a treat :-)

Like Lesley said the organic ones are best, the low fat/sugar ones do have other things in that are not that good for our birdies so are best avoided :)

I've not ever thought about giving yoghurt, I just assumed as they can not tolerate lactose / milk / dairy that yoghurt was a no no?

There's lots of lactose free products about that they can have. Mine have cheese, porridge and yogurt all lactose free.

I think it`s just harder for them to digest lactose, though okay in smaller amounts?

 

Ours like strawberry mousse just a few times a year

I will have to try some yoghurt next time i'm in Tesco. Problem is I do have reading glasses and 9 times out of 10 I forget them when I go out. Then the ingredient labels on various foods is so small its impossible to read. Does anyone have a brand that I can look for?

well done Lesly low suger dose not mean no suger and additives can be bad.  Keep as natrual as possible is the best way
