I was eating a lot of carbs and developed Candidiasis which is Chronic Yeast Infection. I curbed the carbs from 45g. Per meal to 15g. Per day! Yogurt is an excellent food to prevent this condition from ruining your life. I discovered freeze dried yogurt has the least sugar. It is available in Gerber Graduates. 4g sugar and 5g Carbs! No one will know it's not for your kid. I also discovered Chobani Greek for kids has 6g sugar and 7g in each tube. Flavors are grape, watermelon, banana, and chocolate. Diabetes will not defeat me while is hunt food for my health!

Hi Jarney,
I'm a yogurt - atholic… I love the stuff. I am ashamed to admit that
I just can't handle Greek yogurt. Not even if I sweeten it. I eat the
cheaper brands of low fat yogurt. I know the other is better for me
but the taste of Greek yogurt just is awful to me. Plus the price. Oh my goodness. But, I do love yogurt.

Hi Yankee Lady,
I can't help but wonder how many people really don't like the taste of Greek yogurt and just won't
admit to it. LOL.

I'm with you Val. I tried Greek and do not like it, plus the cost is a little much for my budget. Yoplait Lite is about as fancy as I get.

Hi Sue,
Even if by some miracle I could get past the taste the cost would stop me for sure. For me too it's Topsail all the way.

I eat raw (straight from the cow, straight from the farm) yogurt, it is whole milk, and very tasty, I do sweeten it with a bit of stevia, and I do add fruit to it. Although, I'm giving that up for the next few weeks to cut carbs lower. I do love my yogurt, and whenever I am given an antibiotic I definitely up the yogurt intake to cut out chances of candidia. Glad you found what works for you.

Where can I find this raw yogurt? Or do you make your own? I would be interested in giving it a try if you can provide a brand name and/or place to buy. I've never seen it in my grocery store.

i'm very fortunate in that I have a friend who raises dairy cows and has a small milk farm. She makes her own cheese and yogurt and sells that. I drink whole raw cows milk when i drink milk which is rarely also. i'd check at farmers markets in your area, they often have things like this, although a lot of states forbid selling raw milk products, so you'd have to check.

I learned to make my own yogurt… nice and rewarding!! Besides… I can use my own homegrown fruit and cut out all other sources of sugar. Learning new tricks as I go has been one of the more challenging things about beating this metabolic disease. Never give up… always look for a better recipe!!

Never thought of baby food yogurt. Think I will try it just for those great flavors of grape, watermelon, banana and chocolate. I guess in a way I am a Gerber Graduate but no one has to know that I graduated 70 years ago.'
Yogurt is a daily item for me. I use it with a cut up fruit plus 17 cashews. It is the perfect meal for me.

I buy Chobani plain greek yogurt and add my own vanilla and Stevia to sweeten. Sometimes I add a small amount of fresh fruit. It's a great snack with a good deal of protein.

haoleboy 2015-03-14 20:38:14 -0500 Report

the protein almost makes the price worth it for me … but until I hit the lottery I am doing store brand "light yogurts" but sure do like the Greek variety
(note to self … start playing the lottery)


Pegsy 2015-03-14 20:47:39 -0500 Report

I never liked yogurt until I tried the Greek variety. It's the only yogurt I will eat. I only have it a couple of times per week. It is pretty expensive. Most of the healthy things are, unfortunately.

Plain Greek yogurt would give you much more nutritional bang for you buck, ounce per ounce.

NewSong53 2015-03-21 15:32:32 -0500 Report

I get plain Greek yogurt and add Stevia, cinnamon and sometimes a little thawed frozen blueberries. Very tasty!
