Here’s a great hack: an on-the-go yoghurtbased dairy snack that’s packed with real fruit pieces, perfect for the whole family
Studies show that children who often eat yoghurt tend to eat healthier overall than those who don’t – it’s suggested that the yoghurt-eating kids eat less sugar, consume less kilojoules, and eat more fruit and veg. It’s a no-brainer to give your kids yoghurt for a snack, as it’s also a source of calcium and B vitamins. Further research has shown that teens can up their micronutrient intake by eating 125g low-fat fruit yoghurt per day – without adding much to their sugar consumption. Eating a low-fat yoghurt like Clover Fruits of the Forest comes with the added bonus of real fruit pieces – and we all know that a diet rich in fruit and veg is highly beneficial: studies show that having your five-a-day minimises the risk of high blood pressure.

Here are a few health benefits of specific fruit – all of which you’ll find in the Fruits of the Forest range:
Having just half a cup of blueberries or strawberries three or more times a week improves heart health. A large study in women aged between 25 and 42 showed that those who ate berries more than three times a week were 34% less likely to have suffered a heart attack than those who ate berries less than once a week.
Apricots are a good source of the antioxidant betaCarotene (which the body converts to vitamin A), immune-boosting vitamin C (great in winter), and dietary fibre. It is also a good source of lycopene, which helps slow down the ageing process, improves skin health, and shows potential in reducing abnormal cell growth.
Granadilla is a good source of beta-Carotene, vitamin C and potassium. Potassium helps regulate the heart rate and blood pressure, as well as kidney function. Granadillas are also high in fibre, which is essential for gut health and helps keep blood sugar levels in check. They’re also high in iron, which can help with anemia.
