When there is heavy infestation their guideline is different? Do they stay on top of the info and update accordingly?

No.

Worthless.

As I mentioned. In our kitchen it all starts with a wash or soak that includes dish detergent.

As @moko mentioned, recently Blueberries are Peru sourced and are clean (we do try to shop for high quality).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

  R Shalom Tendler says no and it's hit or miss with every location seasonally.

I took that to mean that one can't say a general rule about a location, but it is reasonable to say that CURRENTLY a specific location/source seems to be mostly infestation free. Did I misunderstand?

On that note, I'm still looking and hoping for bodek frozen blueberries to come back :(
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

And I was under the impression that they were so infested that one should not eat them at all! I'm glad to hear that one can soak and check the current ones from Peru.

He is a shochet but doesn't shecht as he can't face his animals being killed


Isn't that a krum hashkafa? I remember hearing a shiur about being a vegetarian and he mentioned is that if someone wants to be a vegetarian because he can't stand the "cruelty" to animals, it's asur

Doesn’t sound like it was on principle. Just a human reaction to caring for them.

We tried the milk. 7 year old didn't like it because it doesn't mix well with her strawberry powder lol
I do want to try the yogurt though. There is no yogurt that's appropriate for children in the CY market. Everything is loaded with sugar

The yogurt is a different product altogether. Cannot compare to the regular stuff sold. But it is quite pricey to keep on hand regularly.

Keep in mind that it has a short shelf life. One taste of it spoiled can cure the want for a long time

We currently use Norman's plain but it's extremely tart. We usually mix it with applesauce

Mix the plain with a flavor until it's the right balance of tart/sweet.
