Yoplait Kids Yogurt A Healthy Snack Review & Giveaway

My three year old loves two things more than life itself - princesses and yogurt. When she and I first saw the princesses on the package of the Yoplait yogurt it is almost as if her life had been fulfilled!



I am very grateful that for the most part all of my daughters eat healthy. They all love fruit, some veggies and pretty much any milk product. We go through a lot of yogurt in my house. I figure if I can't get a glass of milk in them I can at least get the yogurt in them.


Obesity is a huge problem in our population right now. Overweight children are at risk for cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, bone and joint problems and poor self-esteem. As adults, they are more likely to suffer from heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, cancer and osteoarthritis. And in a sample of 5 – 17 year olds, 70% of obese youth had at least one risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CDC).

Yogurt is a great snack that can keep all of our kids within the weight goals they need to be.
Yoplait Kids is packaged with kids in mind, featuring Dora the Explorer, Disney Princesses and Pixar Cars Lightening McQueen. Flavors include Vroom Vroom Vanilla (my boys favorite with McQueen), Royal Strawberry Banana and Strawberry.

Yoplait was kind enough to send me a prize pack that I can share with one of my readers!



 It includes a coupon for Yoplait Kids yogurt, a foldable travel cooler (to take your yogurt on-the-go), a cool four-piece spoon set, a power magnet picture frame, trendy alphabet-shaped “Kiddie Bands”, a great big bounce ball and a “My First Scavenger Hunt” card game for some after-snack fun.
