Despite growth in popularity over recent years, the average American still eats less than one cup of yogurt in any given week, compared with nearly double that amount in Canada and five times that in some European countries. The One Yogurt Every Day campaign was created to promote healthy eating and increase awareness of the benefits of regular yogurt consumption. This effort brings forward science-based nutrition education and the voices of health and nutrition experts to amplify the benefits of yogurt across life stages and diverse populations.
For consumers, One Yogurt Every Day can be an important first step toward creating a more balanced diet and a healthier lifestyle. For policymakers, One Yogurt Every Day is a practical, specific and easily achievable recommendation that would help close the gap on shortfall nutrients and help improve Americans’ diet quality.
