Benefits of Yogurt in Your Kids' DietOle & Shaina Olmanson
Yogurt was a staple in my house when I was growing up. I remember clearly my parents eating it daily, and even now, my mom and dad have a whole shelf of their fridge dedicated to yogurt. So, we know we are eating it, but what are the benefits of feeding yogurt to yourself and your kids?
1. Yogurt is full of good bacteria. This bacteria promotes healthy guts, which means your digestive tract is working properly. Yogurt has probiotics that keep the microflora in your intestines healthy, and that means it also adds to keeping you healthy. It helps with everything from lactose intolerance to colon cancer. This makes it a benefit for all ages.
2. It keeps your bones strong. Yogurt may help prevent osteoporosis later in life, which might not be what you’re thinking about for your kids, but building up your bones starts young.
3. If you have a girl, you probably know the horrors of vaginal infections. Yogurt does its job in this area, too, helping to normalize the pH and keep your girls clear and free from any itching and pain.
