Last week my oldest daughter and I took advantage of the gorgeous weather and scooted to the Chelsea Piers Mind, Body Studio and Sports Center to celebrate Dannon’s newest product, Danimals® SuperStars Fat Greek Yogurt for kids.  Upon arrival, my daughter snapped a shot with the adorable mascot and headed in to try a sample of the new yogurt!  She absolutely loved it.  She then headed upstairs to participate in a variety of sports activities which included basketball, steal the bacon, and tug of war (her favorite).

While the the kids were upstairs, bloggers were able to learn more about the product from the Danimals® team.  Danimals® SuperStars are available in 4oz 4-count packs in five delicious flavors made specifically for kids, including: Strawberry Slide, Strawberry Banana Sprint, Cotton Candy Thrill, Mixed Berry Half-Pipe and Cherry Rush. The names of the flavors make it fun for kids and more exciting for kids to eat. The yogurt has a creamy, mousse like texture. Pull back the top of the yogurt for fun Disney facts.

After learning about Danimals® SuperStars Fat Greek Yogurt, pediatrician, author of Mommy Calls, and fellow mom, Dr. Tanya discussed healthy habits, the benefits of Danimals® SuperStars, and answered questions from guests.  Information she provided:

  • Added sugar? Remember all dairy has naturally occurring sugar.  Danimals have a low amount and Dannon is working to lower the added sugar content more.
  • Yogurt has live active cultures which are beneficial in digestive health, especially when you are sick.
  • Kids need 20g of protein per day.  Adults need 50g.  Good sources of protein other than meat include eggs, beans, & 3 servings of dairy (greek yogurt).
  • Dairy has calcium for bones and vitamin D.
  • Greek Yogurt is great to have in the morning, as a snack, and is also great for dipping bagels in.
  • Start kids on Whole Grain bread early on.  When buying bread and grains make sure there are at least 3g of fiber per serving.
  • Kids need at least 60 minutes of exercise a day.
