My daughters always come home from school STARVING! (They almost never eat breakfast and school lunch is “gross”!) The first thing they do when they get home is grab a snack. They are like locusts, devouring everything in their sights. I used to keep fruit snacks, granola and cereal bars in the house for them to snack on but when I actually read the labels I saw that they are filled with sugar, preservatives, and other additives my girls definitely do not need.

#Yoplait Yogurt is a better for you snack rich in nutrients, vitamins & minerals, is high in protein & low in sugar, cholesterol & saturated fat. #CalciYUM So now am I extra careful about the snacks I keep on hand. I don’t want the girls eating junk food, especially a couple of hours before dinner. While we are always stocked up on apples, bananas, and other fruit, their go-to snack is usually yogurt. It is a staple in our house. Open our fridge on any given day and you will find three things: milk (because my husband and I can’t start our day without milk in our tea), at least one kind of goat cheese (because goat cheese!), and Yoplait yogurt.

The strawberry/mixed berry 8 pack is our house favorite, but the original vanilla/orange cream 8 pack is a close second.

I am happy the girls like yogurt so much. Yoplait yogurt is a better for you snack that is low in sugar, cholesterol, and saturated fat. It contains 6 grams of protein, plus 20% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium and vitamin D. Yoplait yogurt also contains vitamin A, magnesium, and potassium, among other vitamins and minerals.

  1. I have been eating more yogurt during this new year. Making healthy choices for myself and my family is very important. I love that Yoplait is made with whole milk without hormones and does not have any high fructose corn syrup.
  2. really nice that you included the ingredients with your post. I like yoplait yogurt and my husband like to take it when he is on the road traveling. Makes for the perfect breakfast.
  3. I am a big fan of Yoplait yogurt actually. I love yogurt every morning for breakfast - it's my go to meal no matter where I am traveling in the world. Yogurt is necessary. And it's so good for you too.
  4. My husband and I both eat a lot of yogurt. Yoplait is a favorite of ours for sure. I love the original and the whipped.
  5. I am glad to know that your children turn to healthy snack options rather than the overly sweet junk food. We are currently training our grandchildren to like healthy food by consistently offering it to them. So far, they love mashed potatoes and squash, apple juice, and graham crackers.
  6. My kids love yogurt! We've always got a ton in the fridge, but the little individual sizes are really a treat for my kids. Every time we go to the grocery store, they ask if they can pick some out!
  7. I really love eating yogurt as my snack and dinner (sometimes). This yoplait is amazing and healthy at the same time.
