"Y" You Should Read This Giveaway Post

The "Y" I am talking about is as in Yoplait Yogurt and Yoga. We are big fans if Yoplait in our house. One favorite of my husband's is the Blueberry Acai...lots of antioxidants in there! And yogurt contains probiotics and calicum, all residing in that little cup of creaminess. Yoplait has items that will satisfy many different tastes...regular, non-fat and Whips and the plain yogurt is a great replacement for fats in cooking and baking. A few months ago I posted a cupcake recipe using Non-fat Strawberry Yoplait Yogurt. They are light and delicious!

I also love doing yoga stretches. I may not be in a formal class, but yoga provides me with relaxation techniques and help many areas of my body be healthy. It is a nice way to start the day.

BlogSpark has provided me with an opportunity for a great giveaway! Yoplait is a tasty way a to get more calcium and vitamin D in your diet that’s guaranteed to please both moms and kids. Yoplait is the only leading brand of yogurt containing calcium and vitamin D in every serving (10-20 percent of your daily value of vitamin D and an excellent source of calcium). Yoplait offers a large variety of great tasting flavors to help the whole family meet their vitamin D and calcium needs.

Did you know that …?
76% of the population is falling short of getting enough vitamin D; and 72% of the population is not getting enough calcium in their diets*
(Consuming calcium and vitamin D during childhood and adolescence can help reduce risk of fractures in adulthood*)
Getting an adequate amount of calcium and vitamin D, paired with exercise, is important to help build and maintain strong, healthy bones. Yoplait is partnering with Nancy O’Dell, entertainment news reporter and celebrity mom, who understands the importance of incorporating calcium and Vitamin D into her diet – while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Two lucky winners of my giveaway will win a Yoplait Yoga mat with carrying case, a coupon for a free Yoplait yogurt** and an autographed copy of Nancy O'Dell's book titled Full of Life!
