EasiYo’s new bright and bold Red Yogurt Maker is the perfect way to make delicious, fresh yogurt in your own home for all the family.


The new maker – featuring the first redesign in the brand’s 23 year history – is sleek and stylish, yet simple. With no moving parts or electronics, it’s easy to clean and is the perfect size to fit compactly on a kitchen shelf. Durable and secure, the maker features an easy grip handle, non-slip feet and smooth surfaces. The redesign also sees the old polystyrene insulation replaced with a layer containing New Zealand wool – which helps to keep the yogurt at the right temperature during the fermentation process.

When a Kiwi dad invented EasiYo in the early nineties, the aim was to allow families to make the best quality, tastiest yogurt in the world – in their own home. It is now the number one yogurt maker brand in New Zealand with half of all households having an EasiYo Maker in their kitchen. In the UK, over 600,000 yogurt makers have been sold since the brand was launched in here in 1999.

Because EasiYo is made fresh in the home, there are no artificial colours or flavours and no stabilisers delivering all the benefits of homemade goodness*. EasiYo is also gluten free and vegetarian.

Creating your own fresh yogurt, either alone or with your family couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is mix an EasiYo Yogurt sachet with water, put it in the EasiYo Yogurt Maker and in 8-12 hours or overnight you’ve created 1kg of delicious yogurt.

There are over 30 flavours to choose from, including Natural, Greek Style, Banana, Apricot, Strawberry, Lemon & Ginger Bits and Forest Fruits.

EasiYo is stocked all over the UK at retailers including QVC, Lakeland, Holland and Barrett, Wilko’s, The Range, Hobby Craft and a large number of independent stores.

The EasiYo Red Yogurt Maker is priced at RRP £17.99 and each EasiYo yogurt sachet is priced from RRP £2 (per 1kg serving).

Bruce Newman, Cow & Gate Marketing Manager comments: “At Cow & Gate we love it when little one’s show their personalities, which is why we’re really excited about our new brand activation to find little personalities to star in our new advert.”

Celebrate your little ones personalities as they become there own little person by sharing a 30 second video with Cow & Gate and you never know they could be the next star of their new advert launched on Youtube later on in the year.

I’m A Growing Up Milk Mum

I have some exciting news to share with you all, i have been invited to be a Growing Up Milk Ambassador with Cow & Gate.

Even though Oliver is 19 months now i still give him growing up 1-2 years formula milk, there are days where he doesn’t have a very good appetite and giving him formula milk gives me that added reassurance that he is receiving the essential nutrients of vitamins and minerals that he needs to grow into a strong healthy boy.

When Oliver was a new born i breastfed him until he was 8 weeks old when unfortunately our breastfeeding journey had to come to an end, it was upsetting and i felt like i was failing in being a mum, Oliver was born with Reflux and he brought up his milk straight after a feed. He wasn’t keeping much milk down and i was exhausted, our nights were filled with dealing with his reflux fits where he held his breath and shook uncontrollably, he wasn’t putting on much weight and had gone way below the bottom line on the centile growth chart. We was given medicine which had to be added into his milk just before feeding and put onto a formula which was thicker in the hope that the milk stayed down in his tummy.

Oliver’s reflux became a lot better by the time he was 6 months old but we still have the odd times when he can bring up his milk.


I will keep you up to date with new stories, polls and videos about toddler health, i will also share with you some lovely recipes from toddler chef Fiona Faulkner.
