Yogurt is a staple around our house--Big Brother eats some form of it almost every morning. I have not yet been ambitious enough to try to make yogurt myself, but do often times buy plain, all-natural, or low sugar options and then "spruce it up" ourselves. The convenience though of individual packages sometimes can't be beat, so I was thrilled to hear about Yoplait Kids yogurt!
Yoplait Kids has an excellent source of both calcium and vitamin D, a good source of protein and the delicious taste kids demand. It also contains 25% less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt, and has no high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. Yoplait Kids yogurt is a snack you can feel confident about serving to your kids!
Here you can compare the nutrition facts from a standard Yoplait yogurt & Yoplait Kids:With tasty flavor options, as well as calcium, vitamin D and protein to help build strong bones, Yoplait Kids yogurt is sure to be popular with parents and kids alike. A great value at just $2.00 for a pack of four, this yogurt comes in three delicious flavors, including Strawberry, Strawberry Banana and Vanilla. Kids will love finding their favorite friends, like Dora the Explorer, Lightning McQueen from the hit movie “Cars” and the Disney Princesses, on every cup.
Yoplait Kids has also partnered with well-known mom-blogger, Christine Coppa, Mama's Boy blogger at parenting.com and author of Rattled! (Broadway Books, 2009), who has developed helpful snacking tips for moms with young children including:

Big Brother is all about "Cars" and was over-the-moon to see Lightning yogurt in the fridge. In fact, he wanted to watch the movie while eating his yogurt! :)
