Yogurt Can Be The Best Healthy Snack for Children

Jakarta: As is well known, yogurt has tremendous benefits for the health and development of children. Starting from probiotics, calcium, to dietary fiber.

Instead of choosing snack foods such as chocolate and candy, yogurt is also filling for children. Especially when they left the moment of breastfeeding.

“Most children stop consuming milk at the age of two years, and the percentage of adequate calcium in children decreases dramatically after the age of two years,” explained Emilia Achmadi, MS. RDN, nutritionist.

The intake of vitamin D and potassium, according to Emilia, is also low in children aged 2-11 years, and these two ingredients are available in quality yogurt.

“Yogurt also contains protein and calcium which are important for bone health. Especially the bones of children who grow quickly,” said Emilia.

Currently, there are still many parents who are worried about the sugar content in dairy products such as yogurt. In fact, according to the Nutrition Journal 2017 created by Azais-Braesco V et al., Yogurt only contains 1-8% natural sugar and 4-9% added sugar, making yogurt safe for children’s consumption.
