Are you a label reader? Do you ever get label shock when you read the nutrition information for foods that you thought were healthy? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been surprised with what I’ve found on a label – lots of added sugars, chemical additives and plenty of hard to pronounce ingredients I’m not familiar with. Over the past year, I’ve been making an effort to clean up our diet. I want to know what’s in the food we’re eating.
Yogurt has been a favorite food of all three of my kids since before their first birthdays, it was love at first bite. Until recently, I assumed that yogurt was a healthy anytime snack choice. When I glanced at the label of the brand I’d been purchasing the most, I wasn’t thrilled. The ingredient list was quite long, including artificial flavoring and colors. Blueberry yogurt that doesn’t contain any blueberries? Surely there were better options out there. I decided to look for a new yogurt.
This is when I started buying Mountain High Yoghurt. The ingredients list was both shorter and simpler: Cultured Pasteurized Milk, Nonfat Milk, Cream, Crystalline Fructose, Natural Vanilla, Pectin, Natural Flavors, Live, Active & Probiotic Cultures.
I was worried about how my kids would react to the change, as they had been eating the old brand for so long. As it turned out, there were zero complaints, they loved Mountain High. We love yogurt for many reasons, but what I love most about Mountain High Yoghurt is the simplicity.
Have you tried Mountain High Yoghurt? Did you enjoy it?
Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mountain High Yoghurt. I received a gift card to purchase yogurt, a product kit, and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
