Healthy Eating Tip: Mix Plain and Fruit Yogurts

I probably eat yogurt at least five days a week, being that it's so healthy with all the beneficial bacteria it contains. Even better is plain yogurt, since it doesn't contain as much sugar as fruit-flavored yogurts. If the sour taste is too pungent for your taste buds, I discovered a good compromise. I mix half plain yogurt with half fruit yogurt, so my new concoction is slightly sweeter than plain yogurt but doesn't have as much sugar as just the fruit-flavored yogurt.

To see how the nutritional info of this mixed yogurt compares with eating either just plain or just fruity yogurt
