It just makes me mad. Plain yogurt is healthy. It is what many food companies do to it that makes it unhealthy. You think yogurt with fruit on the bottom is healthy – too many have more sugar than a candy bar. Watch for the amount of sugar and ingredients in all flavored yogurts. Better to buy plain and add your own fresh or frozen fruit. Bottled drinkable yogurts/smoothies may have as many calories as an ice cream dessert. Again, it is all the added ingredients used to make it that are collectively unhealthy. Instead, make you own yogurt smoothies with fresh fruit. Frozen yogurt is mostly misleading as to its health benefits. By the time it is flavored and sprinkled with toppings, you are really looking at an ice cream sundae. Please watch out for sugar and fat-free versions. Artificial ingredients are the worst! Now you know not to be fooled by some food companies. Outsmart them with your knowledge – Buy Smart.
