Yogurt is a healthy snack for kids. It’s a great serving of protein and calcium, and it tastes good at any time of day. So Go-Gurt, that yogurt that comes in a squeeze tube, that should be healthy too, right? Not according to Paula at Strollerderby.
While the number one ingredient is low fat milk, it’s followed by sugar and high fructose corn syrup. And for daily nutrition, it has vitamin A, D3, and calcium, but less than 10% of the daily recommended dose of each.
“Why do we allow ourselves to pretend that faux healthy foods like fruit snacks and Go-gurt are better than candy?” Paula writes. “I know better and I still play that game. Is food marketing that convincing? Apparently so.”
Paula isn’t arguing that Go-Gurt is bad for your kids, just that it’s not particularly healthy. Treat it like candy, not yogurt.
