Remember when you had to make only one decision: fruit on the bottom or mixed in? Today, there are entire aisles dedictated to the stuff. What to look for:
Between 90-180 calories. That's per 6-to-8-ounce serving. A parfair can have over 300 calories - that's like dessert!
Less than 3-5 grams of fat. Some whole-milk yogurts have more fat than a doughnut. Choose non-fat, 2 percent or soy varieties.
At least 6 grams of protein. It's what keeps you full. Greek yogurt has the most protein per serving: up to 20 grams (that's more than a burger!).
Probiotics! Look for "live active cultures" on the label. They're the healthy bacteria that can help your digestive system and may even curb colds.
