Too much sugar is something that I worry about for my kids, especially my youngest. He seems to get a bit more wound up than normal when he ingests a lot of sugar. I try to limit sugary snacks and was pleased to be asked to try Yoplait Kids' yogurt in my home. Both of my kids enjoy yogurt and I thought it would be a nice change of pace since they typically request yogurt that's higher in sugar.
What my 9 year old thought:
I got the strawberry strawberry banana flavor and they were extra cute with Disney Princesses on the outside. That's where her love for the product ended. She thought the taste was "OK" and didn't think it was sweet enough. In addition, she thought the yogurt cup was awful small. I'll give her that since I thought they were a bit on the small side myself.
What my 6 year old thought:
He wasn't turned off by the taste at all. He really liked the yogurt and had no complaints about it not being sweet enough. He didn't even care that they came in a girly package and he finished the other 3 cups. As a quick snack, I think he's accustomed to a larger portion. However, I liked that he wasn't turned off by the fact that Yoplait kids contains 25% less sugar than leading kids' yogurts. It also has no HFCS, artificial flavors, sweeteners or colors. Score one for mom! I wouldn't mind seeing it in a larger portion though.
