Better for you snacks to refuel for the New Year
Moms love that Go-GURT yogurt is a fun source of calcium and vitamin D on the go. Just freeze Go-GURT overnight, toss in the lunch box and it thaws by lunchtime*. And now Go-GURT is even better with no high fructose corn syrup and contains natural colors and flavors.

Yoplait Go-GURT Grab 'n Go Smoothie Poppers* are a delicious frozen treat that can be made in any shape and are perfect for snacking on the go. Simply blend banana, tubes of any flavor Go-GURT, frozen strawberries and orange juice. Pour into sections of ice cube trays or shaped molds and freeze. When frozen, pop out and store in a resealable freezer plastic bag for snacking.

Try Yoplait Go-GURT Yogurt Dippers for a fun snack at lunch, after school or after a big sporting event. Select your favorite flavor of Go-GURT and dipping items, such as mini pretzels, animal crackers, baby-cut carrots, mini fruit skewers or cookies. Place them all in separate containers and put them in your kid's lunch box or serve them after school on a fun tray.

With 30 years of experience, Yoplait continues to bring innovation to the category by focusing on consumers' varying needs from a trusted brand they can rely on and one that is fun for their families. A good source of calcium, Go-GURT yogurt contains natural colors and flavors and has at least 10 percent daily value of Vitamin A and D.

The reformulated Go-GURT has new packaging with the health messages called out, and all the same great flavors.

With a suggested retail price of $2.89 per 8-pack, $4.99 per 16-pack, and $6.49 per 24-pack, Go-GURT is available nationally in the refrigerated aisle.
