Making Better Choices with Activia Selects Yogurts

I recently had the opportunity to try the new Activia Selects yogurt. I have eaten Activia yogurt before and it is one product I buy on a regular basis.

Activia now has some new products. They have a French style yogurt, a French style yogurt with fruit at the bottom, a Greek style yogurt and a yogurt parfait.

I decided to try the Activia Selects yogurt parfait and, for good measure, I bought the new Activia Selects French style yogurt as well. I love yogurt and granola so the parfait was the perfect choice. The granola comes in its own separate container on top of the yogurt so it is easy to mix and stays crunchy. It was delicious. The French style yogurt was delicious as well. It was smooth and creamy and had chunks of fruit. I love being able to taste the fruit when I eat yogurt.

This opportunity came at the perfect time because I have been noticing that my pants are getting a little tight lately. When that happens it is definitely time for me to start watching what I eat. No longer can I have a doughnut for breakfast or chocolate for an afternoon snack. I have to start switching to better choices. I find that yogurt is the perfect snack or breakfast for me.

I work full time so it is not always easy for me to eat breakfast. I love that I can grab a yogurt and have it before I hit the road. I can also pop it into my lunch box and keep it in my work fridge and have it sometime during the day. I think the Activia Parfait is the perfect snack for that dead time around 2pm and 3pm where I get tired and need a pick me up. The yogurt along with the granola gives me that extra added energy without the calories or fat.

Besides the fact that Activia tastes great, I know it is good for me as well. My doctor has told me that I need to take probiotics and Activia contains Bifidus Regularis, a probiotic culture, that helps regulate my digestive system when consumed daily for two weeks as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. I get the best of both worlds: great taste and nutritious snack.

Also, I love that Dannon is sponsoring the Cups of Hope Campaign. All you have to do is enter the code that is underneath every lid of specially marked cups. Once you enter the code, Dannon will donate 10 cents to the National Breast Cancer Foundation!! That is awesome. They will donate up to $1.5 million dollars with a guaranteed donation of $500,000.

So if you need to start making better choices, consider Activia. It is delicious and, best of all, satisfying. It is also a nutritious option for any lifestyle.

Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Dannon Activia Selects Yogurt Series and received a coupon to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
