The Benefits of Yogurt

Posted: Updated:
Atlanta, GA -

Yogurt is a healthy snack...

Those little cups are full of vitamins and minerals that many nutritionists say are essential for a healthy diet.    

Whether you choose low-fat, high calcium, greek, plain, or flavored yogurts are full of good things, like protein, and nutrients.

Marie Spano, a registered dietician, says, "They keep us full for a longer period of time, they're good for maintaining and building muscle mass over a course of a life span, and many of them are rich in calcium and vitamin D, but again you have too look at that product label, and they contain that live and healthy bacteria that's good for our digestive tract."

 If you're trying to load up on calcium, or watching your fats, salt and sugars, dietitians says it's best to read the labels, because different brands have different nutritional content.
