I am a statistic. If you are a woman, you might very well be too. What statistic is that? Sixty percent of women do not get enough calcium in their diet. And yes, I am one of them.
How do I know? Since the new year began, I have been logging my food in a program that breaks down how I am doing on nutrients.When it comes to calcium (and fiber), I am ridiculously low every day. That really needs to change.
We all have heard it again and again: Calcium helps build and maintain strong bones and teeth. But what if you aren’t getting enough calcium in your diet? Your bones can suffer. Not getting enough calcium can lead to developing osteoporosis, low bone mass and greater risk of fracturing bones, according to the National Institutes of Health - http://www.niams.nih.gov/Health_Info/Bone/Bone_Health/Nutrition/default.asp
That brings me to Yoplait. I’ve been eating Yoplait for years, because the portion size of their yogurts is just right for me. And as it turns out, eating Yoplait can help me not be in that statistic anymore. One cup of Yoplait yogurt has 50 percent Daily Value of calcium. Add a 6-ounce cup to breakfast time, and you just consumed 50% of the Daily Value, that’s 500 milligrams of calcium! How huge is that? It’s especially big because that’s twice as much as the leading yogurt.
And Yoplait is giving away 1 million cups of yogurt to help you get started on your daily calcium goals. Visit https://www.yoplait.com/get-your-free-cup to get your free cup today.
It’s an easy addition to your morning routine … and the benefits of getting enough calcium are huge. Sounds like a good thing to me.
