Calcium for Kids

Yoplait for kids = calcium + vitamin D

Calcium and vitamin D are essential nutrients for building strong bones. In fact, building bone mass is critical in adolescent years and maintaining it is important throughout life. Unfortunately, about 50% of children 2 years and older are not meeting the recommended amount of calcium and 90% are not meeting vitamin D recommendations1.

Vitamin D helps bones absorb calcium

Vitamin D is an important piece in the healthy bones puzzle—it is important to help in calcium absorption. All Yoplait® for kids has at least 10% DV for calcium and vitamin D.

It can be a challenge for growing kids to get vitamin D since vitamin D is naturally found in very few foods, (mostly cod liver oil, egg yolks, salmon, and tuna). That's why Yoplait makes vitamin D-fortified yogurts like Yoplait Kids®, Trix® Yogurt and Go-Gurt® to be a delicious source of vitamin D in kids' diets.

Calcium and vitamin D your kids will actually eat! But don’t take our word for it. Try our kids’ yogurts today!
