Yogurt is a healthy addition to any diet, depending on its ingredients. Examine the content carefully to determine a particular brand of yogurt's nutritional value.

Many people like yogurt for the health benefits of probiotics. However, keep in mind that once the yogurt is frozen, the probiotics are inactive.

Be aware of sugars and chemical additives in the frozen yogurt. Toppings and stir-ins also play a major role in how healthy frozen yogurt is. Toppings such as candies or syrups add only empty calories to frozen yogurt. If used carefully, fruits and nuts are beneficial additions without adding too many additional calories.
