You need to grow big and strong too – JD, 5
I got an interesting email from Yoplait this week. Apparently, while most people know how important it is to have a diet rich in calcium, far fewer know that Vitamin D is essential for promoting calcium absorption in the gut, which in turn allows it to get where it needs to maintain healthy bones.
This isn’t so much of a problem in the summer, as we can absorb the majority of our recommended daily Vitamin D intake from the sun, but in the winter it’s not so easy.
So, Yoplait sent me a new yoghurt that contains 50% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium as well as 100% of vitamin D. Apparently it’s the only product of its kind currently on the market. Seems like a fairly smart choice of snack for the winter months.
But how does it taste? I tried the strawberry flavour and found it perfectly pleasant, with pleasingly fresh tasting fruit pieces and an impressively creamy texture, particularly as each pot comes in at under 125 calories.
If you want to give Calin+ a go, it’s available from all major supermarkets for £1.99 for a pack of four.
Disclosure: I was sent a pack of Calin+ for review. No payment was received for this post. All posts are 100% honest.
