Health effects of yogurt

Yogurt has a role to play in dietary improvements in the following groups:

  • Mums-to-be: yogurt helps them meet their nutrient needs, and can provide nutrients that are vital for fetal development.
  • Growing children: yogurt is a convenient and tasty way to help growing children meet their calcium needs
  • People at risk of type 2 diabetes: 80 g of yogurt daily has been associated with 14% reduction in risk of T2D
  • Ageing and elderly people: as people grow older, they tend to have smaller appetites; yogurt provides a good source of calcium and high quality protein, helping to reduce fracture risk and combat against sarcopenia.
