My Yogurt Picks- kids and adults

 
 
 
 
 
I had that wonderful task yesterday of shopping in the yogurt section.  Or should I say Wall O'Yogurt.  Anyway,  after reading many, many labels (mostly on the kids yogurts) here are my picks.
 
Hands down, the YoPlait kids has the least sugar with only 9 g of sugar (most have upwards of 14, 15+).  It has no crazy artificial flavors or colors.  I also like the fact that a child can sit down and enjoy this yogurt with a spoon, as opposed to sucking it out of a bag, like a Gogurt.  The small Dannonino cups are a good bet too, though they are small- they would make a nice addition to a meal or snack.   Both these choices have less sugar than even  the Stonyfield Farm lowfat yogurt cups for kids.  The Stonyfield Farm YoKids has 13 g sugar per cup.  
 
For adults and kids at home, I still stand behind the nonfat or lowfat plain Greek yogurt.  These yogurts have extra protein in them- they will keep you feeling full and satisfied longer.  Also, you get to add what you want.  Just add a teaspoon of honey- this will give you 5 g of added sugar- not too bad.  Also kids sometimes like to "make" their own yogurt.  Give them some plain Greek yogurt, some fresh fruit, a little honey or maple syrup and they get to mix it all together and eat it.  And of course there's smoothies which I have recently posted about.  The smaller container Greek yogurts with the mix-ins on the sides are great for adults on the go.  Just don't mix in the whole thing- save yourself from all that sugar- keep it to a teaspoon.
 
Let's teach our kids to eat what yogurt is meant to be, not what the food industry thinks yogurt should be (loads of sugar mixed with food coloring).
 
So enjoy your yogurts- hopefully these tips will get you away from the yogurt wall a bit faster.
