Fresh dairy products producer Yoplait has introduced Yoplait Kidz(TM), a yogurt in a cup made expressly for kids. A healthy choice as part of a meal or as a snack, Yoplait Kidz(TM) is a conventional yogurt that comes with the nutritional benefits of vitamin D, fortified skim milk and real fruit purée. Yoplait Kidz(TM) is also the first and only kids' yogurt in Canada featuring the characters from Shrek(R) on pack, so the fun starts even before children have a chance to dip their spoons. With the introduction of Yoplait Kidz(TM) in January 2009, Yoplait will offer the most complete product range within the kids' yogurt category.

    Yoplait Kidz(TM) contains 10 per cent of the recommended daily value of calcium, 15 per cent of the recommended daily value of vitamin D and only 12g of sugar in a 100g serving. With no artificial colours, a plus for moms, and a smooth and creamy texture, a plus for picky eaters, Yoplait Kidz(TM) offers a variety of flavours that kids love including Strawberry, Banana, Raspberry, and the totally new and unique, Apple-Grape.

    "Inside the fun Yoplait Kidz(TM) pack is a good source of calcium, vitamin D and protein," said Mario Proulx, Director of Research & Development at Yoplait. "It is important that kids get two servings of milk products everyday and this is a great option to help parents ensure their children reach the recommended daily intake by providing a product they enjoy."


    Each 4 x 100g package of Yoplait Kidz(TM) contains a fun Shrek(R) game printed inside the sleeve. With games like "Connect the Dots" and "Find the Difference" Yoplait Kidz(TM) is not only a healthy and tasty option, but also a fun and educational experience.

    In homage to kids and Shrek(R), Yoplait will run a contest from April 6 – 23 in partnership with Yummy Mummy Club offering families of four a chance to win an all expense paid weekend in New York City to watch Shrek The Musical.
