(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Napa Valley, CA - August 30, 2011 - Wallaby Yogurt Company, a family-owned producer of organic yogurt, announces the release of two new product lines, Wallababy™ Organic Whole Milk Yogurt for Babies and Joey™ Organic Lowfat Yogurt for Kids. Children and growing families are some of Wallaby’s most enthusiastic consumers, so their needs have long been a focus of Wallaby’s creations. Now the company will offer yogurts specifically formulated and packaged for babies and children.   “Parents who enjoy Wallaby have been asking us to make a whole milk yogurt for their babies for quite some time,” said Ellie Wells, Wallaby’s Marketing Director and an expectant mother herself. “After taking the time to develop a product that we'd proudly call our own, we’re excited to be offering a yogurt that moms and dads can feel confident about adding to their baby’s diet.”   Wallababy™ is made using organic whole milk, as is recommended for babies, and by adding zinc and vitamin D to further meet a baby's growing needs. It is available in banana or blueberry flavors and suggested for babies ages six months and up.   “For years we've also dreamed of launching a line of organic yogurt that’s made especially for kids. Coming up with the name Joey, which is the common name for a young wallaby, was the easy part. Creating the perfect yogurt – low in fat and sugar but full in flavor – took a little longer. But we know the wait was worth it. It’s a fantastic product that kids (including our own) are raving about!” said Claudia Bown, VP of Operations.   Joey™ is made with Wallaby’s signature Australian-style organic lowfat yogurt,fortified with vitamin D. Available in grape or strawberry, these carefully selected kid-friendly flavors are blended smooth with just the right amount of sweetness. Joey is recommended for ages two years and up.   Wallaby Yogurt is cultured after pasteurization, so it contains live and active acidophilus, bifidus, bulgaricus, and thermophilus probiotic cultures. Probiotics can be naturally beneficial, and may helpmaintain a healthy digestive system.   Wallababy™and Joey™yogurts are packed in 4oz cups, an ideal size for young appetites. Each flavor is sold separately, in multipacks of four. Both product lines arenow available nationwide at Whole Foods Market and priced at $2.99.    About Wallaby Yogurt Company Wallaby Yogurt Company is a family-owned business that has been producing organic yogurt in Napa Valley, California since 2001.
