Is Fresh'n Fruity a source of calcium?
Yes, Fresh‘n Fruity is a source of calcium, with around 20% of daily calcium requirements in every 150g serve. Fresh‘n Fruity is also available in 100g pottles, which are also a source of calcium, providing >10% of a daily calcium requirement. However, calcium requirements do vary, depending on age and gender.
Why does my child need calcium?
Calcium is important to help build strong bones and teeth when consumed as part of a healthy diet.
Does Fresh'n Fruity contain Gluten?
Fresh'n Fruity does not contain gluten-containing ingredients.
Is Fresh'n Fruity Yoghurt okay if my child is Lactose intolerant?
Lactose intolerance is a condition where people may be unable to tolerate significant quantities of lactose (the naturally occurring sugar in milk) as they have a shortage of the enzyme (lactase) which breaks the lactose down to digest it. The severity and symptoms of lactose intolerance may vary from person to person, but many people may be able to consume some dairy products, such as hard cheese – which is naturally very low in lactose – and yoghurt – which contains live cultures which have already broken down some of the lactose.
Lactose is present in Fresh’n Fruity yoghurt, and therefore is not suitable for a lactose intolerant child.
Lactose intolerance is different to cow’s milk allergy which is a severe and potentially life- threatening condition where all dairy products must be strictly avoided.
If you have questions about lactose intolerance or dairy/cow’s milk allergy, speak with a health professional for confirmation and advice specific to your child’s needs.
What are the allergens in Fresh'n Fruity Yoghurt
The main allergen present in all Fresh ‘n Fruity Yoghurt is milk. Some flavours do contain sulphites from the fruit and this information can be found on the label under the ingredients list. However, we recommend you read the ingredients list carefully and consult with a health professional if you have any concerns about a specific allergen.

Is the packaging recyclable?
Our 500g yoghurt tubs and lids are made of polypropylene (#5) which is collected for recycling in New Zealand through kerbside and local council recycling centres. Check out your local council’s website to find out more about what packaging can be recycled in your area and whether they accept PP lids for recycling as some councils do and some don’t. Make sure you rinse the tub clean before you put it in the recycling bin as this helps reduce contamination and ensures tubs get recycled into new materials.
Our cardboard sleeves are recyclable through your household recycling and local council recycling centres.
We are working hard to ensure the rest of our packaging is recycle-ready by the end of 2025, including our pottles and seals. This transition takes time as we need to ensure that any new packaging material we use has been fully tested across the life cycle of the product. In the meantime, please dispose of these responsibly in your general waste bin.
Reusing your containers
There are loads of great ideas out there for reusing yoghurt pottles and tubs. One of our favourites is using tubs or pottles to grow seedlings. We also love decorating them and using them for kids arts and crafts – they are great at holding crayons and paint brushes.
Behind the scenes, Pottle Guy is beginning to reinvent himself! We’re working on making our Fresh’n Fruity packaging 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025, so we’ll keep you posted on any future changes and developments.

Does Fresh'n Fruity contain artificial sweeteners?
No Fresh’n Fruity does not contain artificial sweeteners. We use a natural sweet flavour which helps round out the sweet taste of some of the sugars already present. This has allowed us to reduce the added sugar while maintaining that big Fresh’n Fruity taste you love, without adding any artificial sweeteners.
Does Fresh‘n Fruity contain preservatives?
There is some preservative added to the fruit blend which helps to slow down the loss in quality of the fruit over time. You can find this on the label, listed in the ingredients list as preservative (202).
Does Fresh‘n Fruity contain artificial colours and flavours?
Fresh‘n Fruity yoghurt does not contain artificial colours, it only contains natural colours.
Some of the Fresh‘n Fruity range contain artificial flavours. These artificial flavours make up part of the fruit blends and help to round out the tart taste of the fruit.
