Easy Way to Get Your Daily Calcium

I was in the grocery store yesterday, picking up a few staples: eggs, OJ, broccoli, bananas, and yogurt.

Like clockwork, I went to reach for my usual Stonyfield Farms yogurt, but I stopped when I saw something different.

At first I thought it was a new label, but it was actually a new kind of non-fat yogurt called 2-a-Day.

It says on the container, "Getting enough calcium has never been so tasty. Just two of these nonfat yogurts meet your daily calcium needs to help you build and maintain strong bones. And the added inulin and Vitamin D help you absorb more calcium with every delicious bite. "Bone" appetit!"

Cute, huh? But it's really a great idea, so I bought one to see if it tastes any different. It was pretty much the same, if you're used to eating non-fat yogurt.

And it only has 120 calories per container. If losing weight is one of your goals, studies show that a reduced-calorie diet that's high in dairy calcium may help promote weight loss. It's a great and tasty healthy snack that's definitely worth giving a try.

33g of sugar - whoa. Doesn't sound so healthy. Sometimes when companies remove the fat, they add sugar to make up for it. You have to watch out for their tricky moves.

Thanks FIT!!! That sounds okay to me. I hade some nonfat yogurt that had 33g of sugar in one cup that seemed really high to me.

Would you consider 21g of sugar too sweet? Stonyfield Farms original non-fat yogurt has 23g of sugar, so this is a little bit less.

Fit - could you tell me exactly how much sugar is in this yogurt. Most yogurts are just too sweet for me or have way more sugar in them than I want and or need

If it's only 120 calories, it should be pretty low in sugar... right? How many grams of protein per container?

Huh, this is the first I've seen this too. I love Stonyfield Yogurt because they don't use artificial sweeteners and it's all natural.
