Children like yoghurts because of their fruity flavour, bright colours and smooth texture. They are easy to grab from the fridge and to pack in to a lunchbox. But are they healthy? How much sugar and fat is in them? There can be big differences.

Natural yoghurt is the best choice to avoid added sugar. Chop up some whole fruit to add sweetness. It’s better to go for lower fat options because most of the fat in yoghurt is saturated fat. It is usually lower in calories too.
