Yogurt is on the list of affordable healthy foods, but I have a good feeling that you’re not sitting there thinking “Oh Alison, please tell us more about this curious food item that I’ve never heard of before!”
Yes, yogurt is good for us – this is not news. But it’s also worth saying that not all yogurt is created equal. There are plenty of yogurt items in the dairy section that are not what I would call “healthy” by any stretch of the word. I recommend taking a close look at the label if you’re eating yogurt for the health benefits and put back anything that has an especially long list of ingredients or additives like coloring or flavors.
