Not all yogurts are created equal. Tara Harwood, a registered dietitian at Cleveland Clinic, gives the following tips for choosing the healthiest yogurt:
- Choose plain yogurts or those that are low in sugar (some contain as much as 30 grams of sugar).
- Choose Greek yogurts, which are typically lower in sugar and higher in protein.
- Choose a low-fat yogurt and mix it with granola and fresh fruit.
Avoid yogurts with high fructose corn syrup near the top of the ingredients list — it’s just added sugar.
