Yogurt, a healthy snack, seriously?

"All Natural" labeling does not mean that it is a good choice. First, always, always, always, read the ingredient list before you fall for what the label says!

Example: "All Natural" vanilla yogurt, a six ounce serving.
Ingredients: Cultured grade A reduced fat milk, sugar, natural flavor, pectin. Contains active yogurt cultures including L. acidophilus.

Guess what kind of "all natural" snack this is? It is 150 calories that contains 25 grams of sugar, which happens to equal 100 calories, which is equal to 6 teaspoons of sugar!!! YIKES! Add insult to injury, there is ZERO, yes ZERO, grams of fiber! WHHHHAAATTT???

Instead, have a banana and 10-15 raw almonds for a more nutritious healthy snack!
