Your Lowfat Yogurt Might Be Bad

Yogurt is a common go-to snack for people being conscious of what they are eating. Be sure to read those labels. Just becasue it is "lowfat" doesn't mean it's the best choice.

Many lowfat yogurts have a ton of sugar. If your yogurt has 25 or more grams of sugar per serving, put it back! That's like eating a candy bar.

The sugar content should be less than 10 grams per serving. Lately, I've been eating Blue Bunny's light yogurt in vanilla. It has 7 grams of sugar per serving. Check out the links below for examples of good vs. bad yogurts.

This yogurt is not the best choice. It has way too much sugar.

This yogurt is a much better choice.

Now, check out the sugar in a Snickers bar.
