Blog Giveaway – Yoplait Kids

by Kelsey Norwood

in Giveaways


Surprise!!! A random giveaway!!! I thought some midweek giveaway goodness would put a smile on your face, so here you are.

Last week I tried out some Yoplait Kids Yogurt Cups. The nutrition value of regular adult yogurt is a little irksome to me because adult yogurt only comes in low or non fat. And my little person needs all that fat and protein and all those calories to help him grow to be the tall, strapping young man that I have in mind.

A while ago a friend recommended a special type of yogurt especially for kids, I don’t remember exactly what it was, but she said I could get it at health food stores. Well, I don’t go to the health food store all that often (perhaps this will be next year’s resolution…) so I was much more interested when I found out about the Yoplait kind, which you can get at any grocery store.

The cup is half as big as an adult size (4 oz – perfect for kids) and has twice as much fat and more calories. It’s thick and creamy and packed full of all the good stuff kids need. It has 16 mg of Omega-3 fats per serving and 25% less sugar, both very important attributes. I have to continually tell my husband, “Do not eat that. Yoplait is for Joel, not for you!”

I usually buy the cheapest option out there, but I have been converted to the Yoplait Kids brand – I didn’t think this would happen because I am really committed to the lowest prices I can find. But if I can buy half as much yogurt with twice the nutritional value for less than 2 cups of adult yogurt, that’s a good deal. Did you follow that complicated insight into my crazy frugal brain?


Not only will today’s winner receive a few Yoplait Kids product vouchers, with which you can buy yogurt drinks or yogurt cups, you will also get a fancy little Yoplait insulated lunch box and a Brain Quest game for toddlers.

If you haven’t tried out Yoplait Kids yogurt, this is your chance! You can also get a $1.50 off coupon on the Yoplait Kids website, which means you can buy a package of 6 cups for around $1 – try it out and let me know what you think.

To enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post before Friday at midnight. The winner will be announced in a new post Monday morning. Good luck, and THANKS YOPLAIT!!!

My daughter loves yogurt but can never finish a whole cup of the regular kind, this will be awesome for her.


2 Colleen September 10, 2008 at 2:59 am

Sounds like something I need to get to have on hand for my grandkids. Thanks for the information.

3 Elizabeth M. September 10, 2008 at 3:47 am

Healthy and delicious; thanks!

4 Sarah September 10, 2008 at 4:14 am

We haven’t tried this kind yet and my kids are yogurt addicts. Thanks for the info!

5 StampinCathy September 10, 2008 at 5:02 am

WOW what an awesome giveaway. I sure could use this sweet bag and Yogurt….yummy! Thanks for a chance.

6 Victoria September 10, 2008 at 5:07 am

Mmmm…yummy! My little girl loves yogurt!

7 Denise ~ Paper Ponderings September 10, 2008 at 5:24 am

Sounds fantastic…I’ll be searching the grocery store!

8 Trace G September 10, 2008 at 5:41 am

ooohhhh wow!! Thats awesome. My 4 year old is obsessed with yogurt:)

9 Sara September 10, 2008 at 6:05 am

We love this yogurt in our house! What a great give a away!!

10 Jill September 10, 2008 at 6:08 am

My kidlet won’t drink milk – lots of yogurt flows at our house. This would come in very, very handy here….

11 Sallie September 10, 2008 at 6:26 am

Yogurt is a big hit here. I’ll have to try this!

12 Natalie September 10, 2008 at 6:26 am

Yum. I love yoplait and so does my daughter.

13 Rebecca September 10, 2008 at 6:34 am

We just reached the age to try introducing yogurt and cheese. She loves cheese, but we haven’t tried the “baby” yogurt that I saw at the store. Something about it being $6 for a 4 pack and who knows if she will like it, and they only have flavored stuff and we don’t want to use sugar ….

14 Carrie Egg September 10, 2008 at 6:39 am

Super giveaway! My son (3 yrs) loves Yoplait and at least it is healthy too! Cute bag!

15 Helen September 10, 2008 at 6:41 am

My son reaches for yogurt everytime the fridge is open. We’ll definitely try this.

16 Kelly K September 10, 2008 at 6:55 am

I don’t know if I’ve seen that kind of Yoplait. Luckily my boys love yogurt so I’ll have to try it out.

17 Jen T September 10, 2008 at 7:04 am

We love yogurt at our house, and I haven’t heard of this before, so thanks for the info and cool giveaway!

18 Ruby September 10, 2008 at 7:05 am

Something my little ones would love and would be healthy for them and for me.

19 Marne September 10, 2008 at 7:10 am

Fun contest! Thanks.

20 Andria September 10, 2008 at 7:13 am

My boys love yogurt. We haven’t tried yoplait for kids.

21 Jennifer September 10, 2008 at 7:21 am

My daughter loves yogurt! Thanks for the chance to win.

22 Rachel September 10, 2008 at 7:28 am

I have young nieces and nephews that are always snacking on yogurt at my house!!! This would be perfect.

23 Kristen September 10, 2008 at 7:29 am

Now this looks like something I would want, even for just the smaller size!

24 Kris September 10, 2008 at 8:11 am

I have a couple little boys who eat yogurt every day. The vouchers would help in this house. But I think the Brainquest sounds great. I remember when my older kids had these and would quiz each other in the car. Great fun!

25 Baba September 10, 2008 at 8:17 am

Yummy and nutritious too! You can’t beat that!

26 Vicki A September 10, 2008 at 8:51 am

Oh I am going to get this on my next trip to the grocery store. I have a little one who loves yogurt and I haven’t liked the options out there either. Thank you for the great tip and maybe I will win some vouchers. Yea!

27 Liz Autry September 10, 2008 at 9:09 am

well, it couldn’t hurt to try something new!

28 Julie September 10, 2008 at 9:13 am

Amen to your calculation!

29 gisella September 10, 2008 at 9:24 am

41 Becky Smith September 10, 2008 at 10:50 am

I love coupons and my son LOVES yogurt! I will definitely have to try this kind because sometimes that is all I can get him to eat before school, so it would be good to get some extra calories in him! Thanks1

42 Liz Autry September 10, 2008 at 10:57 am

trying new things is good.:)

43 Jessica September 10, 2008 at 11:05 am

my 2 year old loves yogurt, but i am always worried about it being for adults, too. this sounds like the perfect thing for jack.

44 Rhonda September 10, 2008 at 11:19 am

Thank you for the giveaway and the coupon. My son loves the Dora strawberry…hoping its the flavor and not the little girl…this mommy’s not ready for that. ;)

45 Jill Gardner September 10, 2008 at 11:31 am

I can’t wait to try these. My kids like the yogurt that costs more because it features a well known dog!

46 Bonnie September 10, 2008 at 11:36 am

My girls (3 and 5) love the Dora Yoplait yogurts. They are a little pricey…thanks for the link to the coupons.

64 Kimberly Sacks September 10, 2008 at 2:24 pm

My nephews LOVE yoplait kids! Everytime they come over it is the most popular snack.

And it is absolutely true that they have more nutritional value, and so I have since switched!


65 Jenny McGee September 10, 2008 at 2:28 pm

Thanks for the chance to win a Yogurt snack pack. That’s exciting. My kids like yogurt. Thanks, Jenny

68 Stephanie Shumway September 10, 2008 at 5:37 pm

cool contest- I would be interested to see if my kids would finish a yogurt cup this size. he usually opens it and take a few bite and then is done. What a stinker! This could be just the answer!

69 Bethany September 10, 2008 at 5:42 pm

DD LOVES yogurt. This looks great.

70 Michele P. September 10, 2008 at 6:29 pm

72 Karen S September 10, 2008 at 7:58 pm

I’ll look for it the next time I go to the store, my grandchildren love yogurt but can’t finish a full one.

73 MaryBeth I September 10, 2008 at 8:17 pm

We love yogurt too but my daughters never finish a regular size – this is perfect for them.
