Benefits of Yogurt

Benefits of Yogurt

Yogurt is a nutritious food that’s good for people of all ages. Like most dairy products, yogurt Yogurt and Berriesprovides many important nutrients, including calcium, vitamin D, and protein. Many yogurts are low-fat or fat-free and contain little or no saturated fat and cholesterol. Yogurt is a nutrient-dense, convenient and delicious food for snacks and meals.

Yoplait yogurt is a delicious way to help get your calcium with varieties the whole family can love including  Yoplait Original, Light, Thick & Creamy, Light Thick & Creamy, Lactose Free, Whips!,  Greek, Greek 100, and Greek 100 Whips!. Also look for Yoplait Plentí Plentiful Greek yogurt, Yoplait Plentí Oatmeal Meets Greek yogurt, Kids Cups, and Go-Gurt.

Calcium & Vitamin D

It’s no secret that calcium & vitamin D help build strong bones and teeth, and helps keep them strong throughout your life. But did you know that most Americans aren’t getting enough calcium or vitamin D in their diets? Unlike many other yogurts, most General Mills Yoplait yogurts provide a good source of calcium and vitamin D. Studies show that people who eat yogurt have higher intakes of these important nutrients.

  1. NHANES 2009-10 (food only) Day 1 & 2 NCI Usual Intake Method and Institute of Medicine Dietary Reference Intakes on Calcium & Vitamin D Report (2010).

Count on Calcium

Milk and milk products are considered the best food sources of calcium. These foods also have additional nutrients that can help calcium be better absorbed by the body. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, most individuals should include at least 3 servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy in their diets daily.

Here are a few strategies for adding extra calcium to your diet:

  • Substitute yogurt for mayonnaise or sour cream in salad dressings
  • Stir in non-fat dry milk powder to soups, hot cereal, cocoa or orange juice
  • Blend yogurt and fruit pieces to make a thick frothy shake
  • Sprinkle lowfat shredded cheese over casseroles, potatoes or vegetables
  • Top baked potatoes with yogurt and chives
  • Whip plain yogurt and shredded cheese into mashed potatoes
  • Create a creamy, lowfat pasta sauce using blended ricotta cheese and fresh herbs

Discover Vitamin D

You know that you need calcium for strong bones, but did you know that you also need vitamin D to help your body absorb calcium?

Our bodies need vitamin D for the absorption of calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Studies show that calcium absorption improves when taken along with Vitamin D.2 Other studies show that vitamin D may help prevent bone fractures later in life.3,4

Finding Vitamin D in Foods

Vitamin D is formed naturally by the body after exposure to sunlight. Since you can’t always count on the sun, it’s even more important to look to your diet for your Vitamin D. Yoplait is the only leading yogurt with Vitamin D in every serving to provide 10%-20% of the Daily Value. Other food sources of vitamin D include fatty fish such as salmon, cod liver oil, organ meats, fortified ready-to-eat cereal, fortified yogurt, egg yolks, and mushrooms.

StrawberriesThe Pay offs of Protein

Why is protein important?

Protein is an important component of your body and your diet, serving as a building block for strong muscles and alongside calcium and vitamin D, for strong bones. Another benefit of some yogurt is that foods higher in protein may help to satisfy hunger. Come snack time, many nutritionists recommend integrating foods with protein.

Finding the Right Amount of Protein in Snacks

Looking for a snack with protein to help satisfy your hunger? Try Yoplait Greek and Greek 100 which have 10-13 grams of protein in each 5.3 oz cup. Yoplait Greek and Greek 100 are the perfect protein snack option with over 30 flavor varieties. They also have at least a  good source of calcium and vitamin D.


Protein content in common snacks:

Yoplait Greek and Greek 100 yogurt (5.3 oz) 10-13 g protein
Pretzels (1 oz) 2-3 g protein
Raisins (1 oz) 1 g protein
Granola bars, chewy & crunchy (1 oz) 1-3 g protein
Rice cakes (1 cake) 0-2 g protein

USDA Nutrient Database, Standard Reference Release 24, On-line

Other good or excellent sources of protein include meat, fish, eggs, beans and other dairy products. Be certain to check fat content, since some protein sources may contain a significant amount of fat and saturated fat.

RedWhiteBlueStarsFood Fun and Sun


Grilling season has arrived and it’s time to fire up your grill! While grilling is a low-fat method of cooking, many barbeque and cookout dishes can overload us on fat, calories and sugar. Good for you BBQ is about starting with nutritious foods, practicing portion control, and having those summertime treats in moderation.

Here are a few easy ways to cut the calories at your BBQ:

1. Low-fat burgers

90%+ lean ground beef
Veggie burgers
Ground turkey breast

2. Lean grilling meats

Skinless chicken breasts
Shrimp/vegetable kebobs
London broil or flank steak

3. Lower-calorie sides

Grilled veggies
Corn on the cob
Sweet or white potatoes

4. Keep sugary sweets in check

Fruit salad for dessert
Water or zero calorie drinks
Low-fat ice cream

Dare to be different at your next BBQ. Make mixed coleslaw with vinaigrette instead of mayo or try a Dijon mustard potato salad for your guests. Kebobs layered with meat, veggies and shrimp are sure to please and nothing says summer like a big bowl of blueberries and strawberries for dessert. As you can see, swapping out a few items this Memorial Day can make it a Good for you BBQ!

10 Tips to Cutting Calories!

Did you know cutting out just 100 calories a day can help you to lose 10 pounds a year? While that may not seem like much, it can be all it takes to kick start a healthier daily routine!

Here are some super easy tricks to cut calories daily.

  1. Choose popcorn over chips. A single serving of chips has over 150 calories, but you can have five cups of air-popped popcorn for only 100 calories!
  2. Try swapping egg whites instead of a whole egg in the morning. Three eggs (egg whites only) comes in at 100 calories, whereas three large eggs can come up to 215 calories.
  3. Instead of a bagel (300 calories and up) go for a whole grain English muffin, which has only 130 calories.
  4. Use nonstick spray instead of oil. One tablespoon of oil can pack up to 120 calories, while nonstick cooking spray is practically calorie free.
  5. Say no to sugary beverages and choose water or seltzer when possible.
  6. Swap out whole milk with skim for your coffee or cereal in the morning.
  7. Craving chocolate? Swap out chocolate ice cream for a low-fat chocolate pudding to save upwards of 70 calories or more.
  8. Love the taste of peanut butter? Try the powdered version! It provides the same taste without all the calories. Stir it into a smoothie or add to muffins or pancakes.
  9. Decrease alcohol intake by one drink and there goes 100 calories right there.
  10. Use cauliflower! Cauliflower is a great swap in recipes that need a creamy texture or a doughy feel. Did you know you can blend up the veggie and swap it for rice or even pizza dough? Click below for a delicious recipe provided by our culinary dietitian!
