Only 10 grams of Sugar Per Serving…

Dannon yogurt has reduced the sugar content in its Danimals Smoothies Yogurts for children; now it ‘only’ has 10 grams per serving.

That, in addition to the other ingredients (Cultured Low Fat Milk, Water,Calcium Citrate, Modified Corn Starch, Whey Protein Concentrate, Kosher Gelatin, Natural Flavor, Fruit Juice and Vegetable Juice (for color), Malic Acid, Potassium Sorbate (to maintain freshness), Sodium Citrate, Vitamin D3) is supposed to make it a healthy thing to give our little ones.

Have to disagree.  

Sure, on the one hand you might argue that at least most of the items in the list above are at least words we can identify, compared to some which show items starting with an ‘X’ and ending with an ’80’, yet it’s still far from a good, healthy option.

Unless we’re talking about youngsters that are of the bovine persuasion, dairy isn’t something any of us humans should be ingesting.

Refer to the words of Dr. Frank Oski M.D., who stated the following in his book, Don’t Drink Your Milk, about the reasons not to include dairy in one’s diet:

  • The drinking of cow milk has been linked to iron-deficiency anemia in infants and children
  • It has been named as the cause of cramps and diarrhea in much of the world’s population
  • It is the cause of multiple forms of allergy
  • It may play a central role in the origins of atherosclerosis and heart attacks
  • In no mammalian species, except for the human (and the domestic cat), is milk consumption continued after the weaning period [the period of breast-feeding]. Calves thrive on cow milk. Cow milk is for calves.”

I think that just about sums it up!

For a healthier version of yogurt, make some yourself with coconuts!
