Activia Plain Yogurt with Active Probiotic Cultures.
A little background, I have a son who’s 4 years of age. He has just come off of having antibiotics recently, and I was looking for foods full of great probiotics to reboot his tummy. He wasn’t digesting foods well after having antibiotics for about a week after taking them.
That being said, I found Activia Plain Yogurt to help his digestive system. I tried a little of it myself to make sure my kid would be okay eating it. Notably, I have found a lot of plain yogurts can be sour and the texture sometimes isn’t that great. Yet, this yogurt was amazing for its texture and taste. It reminded me of the west coast island yogurt I used to have when I was little. Texturally, it was smooth and had a mild taste to it. I found the yogurt wasn’t overpowering and my son was okay to have it with a little pure liquid honey drizzled over it. Notably, it is the spring/summertime and yogurt is always a bit less sour this time of year. I’d be curious to try their yogurt in the winter to see if it has a sharper taste to it.
What’s in this yogurt?
Ingredients: Sim Milk, Unfiltered milk, Cream, Skim Milk Powder, Active probiotic culture (Bifidobacterium Lactis CNCM I-2494), and active bacterial cultures.
I can say it has helped my son’s gut health, as his stomach finally has settled down. Interestingly, Activia yogurt offers active probiotics and in a serving of 3/4 of a cup with just 120 calories, you’ll get 1 million live and active probiotics. There aren’t any fillers either like gelatin. This product is made in Canada and is a is a supporter of the Dairy Farmers of Canada.
