Yogurt’s role in promoting growth and improving nutrition is better than milk. The lactic acid in it can also inhibit harmful microorganisms, promote gastrointestinal motility and digestive fluid secretion, and increase the absorption of multiple minerals.
As a snack, drink 100 grams (1 small cup) at a time, and eat it with other fruits and nuts. Middle -aged and elderly people with hyperlipidemia can choose low -fat yogurt, and people with diabetic and obese should choose sugar -free yogurt.

But sugar gourds are not the healthiest snacks, so the key is to control the amount. Eat at most once and eat up to twice a week.
If you eat too much, it is easy to cause excessive gastric acid secretion.
High blood glucose, people with gastric ulcers, gastric canal reflux symptoms, and elderly people should eat as little as possible.
In addition to the sugar gourds made of hawthorn, the sugar gourds of Mashan medicine are also more common. It is recommended that you eat alternately, so that the nutrition is more abundant.

3 levels of the nutritional value of snacks
Snacks have the differences between advantages and disadvantages, or not to eat or not. Experts believe that it can be roughly divided into three levels according to nutritional value snacks.
Level first: snacks that can be eaten frequently
Mainly low -fat, low -salt, low -sugar foods. Including four categories:
Dairy and dairy products

Be potato food
, Rich in carbohydrates and dietary fiber, are a good source of energy.

Try to eat between two meals and before meals. Do not eat it after full meal, especially at night.
If the amount of snacks is large, the amount of meals should be appropriately reduced to prevent obesity.
