We all know that it's important to get enough calcium in our diets. I don't know about you, but I tend to consume most of my calcium at breakfast time, with the milk on my cereal and my glass of calcium-fortified OJ. Audrey doesn't like to drink milk, so she often eats yogurt instead. I like to eat yogurt with a little sprinkle of granola or some frozen fruit on top.
Yoplait is running a campaign now to encourage women to get enough calcium. Here's what they had to say:
"In an effort to further educate women about the importance of maintaining strong, healthy bones through an active lifestyle and a diet rich in calcium, Yoplait is partnering with TV host and celebrity mom Nancy O’Dell on a one million cup giveaway of Yoplait Original yogurt, beginning December 13th. Visit Yoplait on Facebook to sign up for your free cup and make a personal commitment to meeting your calcium needs each day. While you’re there, take a moment to enjoy daily calcium tips from Registered Dietitian Katherine Brooking and healthy lifestyle advice from Nancy O’Dell."
"Now with two times the amount of calcium of the leading yogurt, that’s 50 percent of the Daily Value in one convenient 6-ounce cup, Yoplait Original yogurt provides women with an easy and delicious way to get the calcium they need. Yoplait Original also contains 50 percent of the Daily Value of vitamin D, which helps with the absorption of calcium. Yoplait is committed to women’s health and is proud to offer a product that has even more of the calcium and vitamin D they need for strong, healthy bodies."
I was sent a prize pack, including a coupon for a free cup of yogurt, a duffle bag, a jump rope, a water bottle, and a sports towel. My girls scarfed up the yogurt. They love the mixed berry flavor, although their favorite Yoplait product is the Yoplait Whips.
If you would like to win the same prize pack, leave me a comment about your favorite flavor of yogurt OR your favorite way to get extra calcium in your diet. (US addresses only; Yogurt coupon is not valid in California, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, Nevada, North Dakota and Tennessee.) Contest ends Friday, 3/4/11. Please leave your email address in your comment if it is not linked to your profile, otherwise I will need to pick another winner.
This coupon, prize pack, giveaway, and information were provided by Yoplait through MyBlogSpark. I received a prize pack to facilitate my review, but was not otherwise compensated for this post.
