From greek yogurt, probiotic yogurt, whipped yogurt, and everything in between, navigating through all the selections seems a bit overwhelming. ticker-pic-and-story-pic-fruit-and-yougurt-mix

Here are 3 key things to help you choose a healthy yogurt:

  1. Look at the ingredients list: the first two ingredients should be: milk, then lactobacillus (example: L. acidophilus, L. casei, B. bifidum and B. Longum).
  2. When in doubt, go Greek. In comparison to regular yogurt, Greek yogurt are lower in sugar and have less lactose (so good option for our less lactose-tolerant friends).
  3. Avoid added sugar in your yogurt. Opt to add your own honey/fruits to the yogurt to avoid too much sugar.
