Yoghurt is high on the health menu again.
Cambridge University researchers have found that eating a small pot of unsweetened yoghurt every other day reduces the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by a massive 28%.
This latest research is another reminder that you really can’t go wrong with yoghurt. Delicious, easy to eat, versatile and inexpensive to buy. It’s also a nutritional powerhouse, containing calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D and fatty acids.
How can I eat yoghurt for my health?
From standard cow’s milk yoghurt, sharp sheep’s milk, sumptuous creamy Greek yoghurt, low-fat yoghurt, set or sloppy, they're all good. The trend looks set to increase for unsweetened yoghurt and against those with added sugar.
Add some culture to your gym visits. Say yes to yoghurt!
I mean the yoghurts my husband has are NO better than a piece of cake!
Elliot - those petit flious are so tiny though! My partner could eat a whole 500ml pot of yoghurt in one go! But they've got tons of sugar in. He thinks he's being healthy having yoghurt but the ones he has are better than a piece of cake
I'm afraid I'm guilty of eating those kids petit filous ones - they're really good!
not sure about the 'girl food' - but don't buy the tiny pots, expensive and massively wasteful. The ones aimed at kids are also solid sugar.
That's a bit patronising, Bradley! Your loss... We're another yoghurt-loving household, including my burly rugby-playing husband who would resent the suggestion that he's eating "girl food"!!
This definitely comes under the category of Girl Food for me. Not convinced...
I had no idea it was so easy to make your own yoghurt. It's hardly expensive in the shops but it's good to have another option too.
We're a yoghurt house too. Well, mainly me at breakfast with natural yoghurt with berries and sunflower seeds. The kids have it as a pudding with jam! it feels very healthy to give them natural yoghurt rather than the sugary pots. Thanks for the tip of the homemade yoghurt - what a great idea! I will have a look for a yoghurt maker!
Every morning in our house starts with yoghurt - for all of us. It's versatility means it's a different breakfast every morning which is exactly what keeps me happy. The kids always just want the sweetest (natural) option.
