One of my sons is lactose intolerant, even I have a problem processing dairy. There are actually millions of Americans with lactose intolerance - and for them, avoiding dairy may help minimize uncomfortable side effects, but did you know avoiding dairy can have unintended health consequences? According to the National Institute of Health, when dairy is avoided, there are lower intakes of calcium and vitamin D in the diet, both of which are important bone building nutrients often found in dairy. Avoiding dairy can create higher risk for osteoporosis.
While osteoporosis wouldn’t seem like something my son has to worry about at this point, his bones are still growing and benefit greatly from Calcium. I myself avoid dairy for the most part because I just never know how it will effect me,on a particular day. My son is a bit more of a dare devil and hates giving up on the things he enjoys most – like ice cream and yogurt.
Now, his stomach can rest easy with new Yoplait® Lactose Free yogurt! Available in four delicious flavors - Strawberry, Peach, French Vanilla and Cherry, Yoplait® Lactose Free yogurt, contains 50% of the recommended Daily Value of calcium, with vitamins A and D in every cup! None of my kids said a word about it being lactose free so there was no major change in flavor – just a delicious cup of yogurt.
