Stonyfield Organic Expands Kids Yogurt And Snack Lines To Satisfy Littlest Snackers And Discerning Parents Alike

New offerings provide parents with four new flavors in convenient, spoon-free format, perfect for on-the-go families

Londonderry, NH /PRNewswire/ - Stonyfield Organic, the country's leading organic yogurt maker, is adding new flavor options to its Whole Milk Pouches and Snack Packs lines, offering parents nutritious snacking options that taste great and come in convenient, portable formats to meet the demands of today's busy families. Each of these snack options' nutrition label includes nutrients such as protein, calcium and vitamin D which moms love to foster healthy snacking.

The new product additions from Stonyfield Organic are in line with the macro trends seen in the kids snacking market, which is predicted to grow steadily at a CAGR of 10 to 15% from 2018 to 2023, as today's health-minded millennial parents increasingly demand more nutrient-dense snacking options meant to serve as "mini-meals.1"

"Providing healthier snacking options for kids has always been a priority for Stonyfield, and we're excited to share these new flavors and formats with families," said Natalie Levine, Stonyfield Brand Director. "We know the day to day landscape is changing – as parents and youngsters are juggling increasingly jam-packed schedules, the traditional three meals a day have gone out the window, and today's families need more nutritious filling snack options to help fuel their on-the-go lifestyles. These new yogurts and snack pack options are the perfect snacking solution that parents can feel good about because they're filling, convenient, and more importantly, ones their kids will be excited about eating because they taste delicious."

New to the Stonyfield Organic line of Whole Milk Yogurt Pouches are Apple Cinnamon Sweet Potato and Blueberry Apple Carrot. Made with real fruit and veggies and nutritious whole milk that the kids will love. Additionally, these pouches are made with active cultures and have 35% less sugar than the leading kids' yogurt (These Whole Milk Yogurt Pouches have 2.6g of sugar per oz compared to 4g per oz in the leading kids' yogurt). The convenient pouch format makes them a perfect option for families on the move, eliminating the need for a spoon and minimizing spills. All five tasty flavors – including Strawberry Beet Berry and Pear Spinach Mango - are offered in convenient 3.5oz single serve pouches that make it easy for kids to get snacks made with real fruit and veggies any time of day.

Adding to Stonyfield's recently launched Snack Packs line comes two new flavors, Vanilla Lowfat Yogurt & Chocolate Cookie and Strawberry Lowfat Yogurt & Chocolate Chip Cookie.
