My kids do not agree on a lot of things, but one thing they do agree on is how much they love yogurt. My mom was not a big yogurt person, so we did not have it when I was growing up. Because I was ignorant to the benefits of eating yogurt, I did not feed it to my first child. When I was pregnant with Caitlin, a friend was talking about how her kids loved yogurt and I admitted I had never had it before. She could not believe it and proceeded to go inside her house and grab a container and let me try it. Wow was I missing out! From that moment on, I was sold on the flavor and was happy to feed it to my next 2 kids. It was not until later I realized there were so many health benefits connected to eating yogurt. With the new Sam’s Club Yogurt Shop, you can explore a world that is all about yogurt, the super food!
The Benefits Of Eating Yogurt
Not only is yogurt good for you, it is super convenient, affordable and a tried and true standby. Now, Sam’s Club® is shouting from the rooftops (ok, just spreading the word) that yogurt is truly a super food on so many levels. Yogurt is great for your digestions, lowering high blood pressure and cholesterol and is great for your heart. Among the benefits of eating yogurt is it contains a lot of protein, which your body needs, as well as things like calcium, vitamin B-2, B-12, potassium, and magnesium. Because yogurt has calcium and Vitamin D, it can help prevent osteoarthritis if taken each day as part of a healthy food plan. Sam’s Club Yogurt Shop brings you awesome recipes, fun facts, and in-store promotions online. Do you like a little bit of crunch with your yogurt? No problem! You can add some healthy granola or some fresh fruit to your cup. Have you ever tried yogurt fruit pancakes, salad dressings, or smoothies? There are so many things you can do with yogurt, it is mind blowing!
Also, yogurt is a healthy alternative to recipes and meals that call for sour cream, mayonnaise, oil or butter. You can use yogurt, which is tastier and better for you. Did you know Yoplait yogurt has helped raise more than 50 million dollars for Susan G. Komen®? Through 6/30/14, General Mills is donating 10 cents to Susan G.
