Trade Up Tuesday: Soy Yogurts


Happy National Nutrition Month®! This year we celebrate March by Enjoying the Taste of Eating Right. All throughout this month, from our Trade Up Tuesdays, Dietitian's Top Picks and our recipes on Fridays we want to offer you new ways to try new foods and enjoy eating right.


Perhaps today's Trade Up is new to you. We have many guests on our Living Gluten and/or Dairy Free tour who have never had a dairy free yogurt. It's a tasty way to add in a new food this month.

But, before you grab just any yogurt, be sure to check out the NuVal score. Remember, it is one simple number, right on the price tag, that ranks the nutritional value of the food. The higher the score the better the nutrition. So when you pick out a soy yogurt to try, consider this trade up.

Trade Up from:
Silk Soy Strawberry Yogurt
NuVal: 41
to:
Silk Soy Blueberry Yogurt
NuVal: 81

Why does the Silk Soy Blueberry Yogurt get such a better score? The blueberry flavor has less calories, considerably less sodium and less sugar than the strawberry flavor.
