Healthy Eating with Yopa! Yogurt

April 3, 2013

Preschool mornings around here are really hectic. And frustrating dealing with sleepy kids. And there's definitely not enough coffee for all of that! Actually, even if I get a chance to make the coffee, I'm lucky if I can take a few gulps before I'm rushing out the door. If this is what life is like with only one of them in school.... sheesh!

We recently had the opportunity to try Yopa! yogurt and when I looked at the ingredient list in the store, I was pleasantly surprised. Why? I could actually read all of the ingredients. I decided to pick up three flavors: black cherry, strawberry, and blueberry. 

Due to the previously stated  CRAZY nature of preschool mornings, I gave these to the kids for breakfast before we headed out. They really loved the granola section and Silas had fun stirring it in his yogurt. I really loved how convenient it was and how it is packed with nutrition. The 5.3 oz cups I bought contain:
  • 13 grams of protein (26% daily)
  • live & active cultures
  • REAL strawberries, blueberries, and cherries (depending on flavor variety)
  • nine whole grains in the granola
  • no artificial colors

I actually recently bought a pack of Greek yogurt from a very famous brand that I was shocked to discover did not contain live & active yogurt cultures. I will definitely be looking to Yopa! again to satisfy my family's love of yogurt! Not to mention it was delicious.
Speaking of balance, gold medalist Gabby Douglas is an expert, and she's challenging you to take the Yopa! Taste Challenge where you can win a variety of prizes, including $10,000! Just "like" Yopa! on Facebook for a chance to win.

I was selected for participation in this campaign as a member of Clever Girls Collective.

  1. Very cool! I've never seen this at my grocery store but I need to look around for it. I currently eat the "famous brand" Im pretty sure you were referring to and it bothers me that there are not live and active cultures...

    1. They sell it at Walmart, FYI. And yes, I was shocked about the live cultures - just read the labels. The one I had bought was lower priced than they're regular variety and I'm suspecting that's why. Good to have Yopa! as a great alternative, though. Thanks for stopping by!
