Why is yogurt so good for you?
Yogurt is a quick and easy, nutritious snack. It provides several essential nutrients including calcium and phosphorus which are necessary for bone health. Interestingly, even though all milks contain vitamin D, another bone health nutrient, not all yogurts do, so be sure to check the label. Additionally, yogurt is known to contain probiotics, or “good” bacteria, which can provide a broad range of health benefits when eaten in adequate amounts.
• Most 8 oz. servings of yogurt varieties are excellent sources of calcium, phosphorus and riboflavin, and good sources of protein and potassium; all of these are essential nutrients.
• Greek yogurt varieties typically contain twice the protein of regular yogurt.
• If seeking probiotic benefits (digestion or immune function) from yogurt, be sure to look for the words, “live and active cultures” on the label.
Tips for adding yogurt to your daily diet
• Greek yogurt is a perfect substitute for your sour cream on tacos or in dips.
• Add your favorite fruit and high-fiber granola for a great breakfast staple.
• Make your creamy dressing low in fat and calories by substituting Greek yogurt for mayo and sour cream.
