Go Yogurt?

A research study has shown that  people who said they ate yogurt also reported consuming higher amounts of other good-for-you foods, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, fish and whole grains. Yogurt is a good source of calcium, magnesium, and potassium and many Americans don’t consume enough of these nutrients. The study shows that if many consume yogurt in place of less healthy foods, it may help eliminate the inadequate intake of shortfall nutrients.

A one-cup serving of low-fat yogurt has a similar nutrition profile to that of a cup of low-fat milk, but with roughly 50 percent more potassium, calcium, and magnesium, the researchers pointed out.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe consuming yogurt makes you eat healthier foods?
