Nutritious eating habits for my family has always been a priority, as well as for myself.  Recently, I have been trying to get more physically fit and lose some pounds in the process.  Watching calories and reading labels, have become a part of my every day life.  Food is something that we eat every day, so nutrition should be a top priority.

We have always been a big fan of yogurt as one of our go to healthy snacks.  It is a fast and easy snack and we all love it.  Recently, I was given the chance to try Dannon’s Activia Selects-French Fruit On The Bottom yogurt and at first, I was hesitant because I am a little picky about yogurt.  Some yogurts can be either too sweet, or too sour and sometimes, the fruit chunks can be overpowering, but this was really tasty with just the right amount of fruit.  I was worried about it tasting  different since I didn’t even know what on Earth Activia was.  What is so helpful about yogurt containing  Activia?  Well, Activia Selects yogurt has the probiotic culture called Bifidus Regularis that is supposed to help regulate the digestive system when consumed daily for 2 weeks.  Probiotics are  known by many as “the beneficial bacteria,”  which many people believe if carried in the intestinal tract in significant amounts, are thought to help ease some digestive concerns.

Anything, that can give me a leg up in nutritious eating habits and that I can quickly and easily add to my diet is definitely something that I will keep on hand.  I love that Activia Selects are a quick and easy way to get some of these good things that my body needs.  I will definitely buy these in the future.  And speaking of your health…
