Yogurt is nutritionally rich in protein, calcium, and riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 It has nutritional benefits beyond those of milk. People who are moderately lactose-intolerant can consume yogurt without ill effects, because much of the lactose in the milk precursor is converted to lactic acid by the bacterial culture. Yogurt containing live cultures is sometimes used in an attempt to prevent antibiotic-associated diarrhea
Yogurt contains varying amounts of fat. There is non-fat (0% fat), low-fat (usually 2% fat) and plain or whole milk yogurt (4% fat). A study published in the International Journal of Obesity January 11, 2005, found that the consumption of low-fat yogurt can promote weight loss, especially due to the calcium in the yogurt.

Since it will be your teenager that is attending college, the first ten important questions to ask will be to him/her. Keep this question and answer session conversational and light, but let him/her know that the answers are important and he/she has time to think about it. Actually, the best time to have this conversation is when your teenager is just starting High School, so that he/she can have years to form their answers.
- Why do you want to go to college?
- Do you want to go to school for two years or four years?
- What do you want to be? What job do you want to have?
- What majors are you considering? How will this major get you to what you want to be?
- Are there other careers you have considered?
- What high school grades will you need to get into college? Do you have a plan on how to obtain those grades?
- What high school classes will you need to go to college? Does your high school have those?
- Have you considered the cost of college? Have you considered how we are going to pay for it?
- Do you want to live at school or do you want to live at home?
- What do you want the school to offer besides your major? What extracurricular activities are you interested in?
We all know a teenager or two who blogs and maybe even vlogs (video blogging) because online journals are great ways for teens and kids to engage in self-expression. There are many positive benefits of blogging which include identity building, improved writing and communication skills, and more.
Over half of all blogs on the Internet are written by kids under the age of 19. Some teens have a tendency to overshare on their blogs, and a surprising amount of parents are unaware that their child is blogging at all. Here are some quick tips to help kids (and their parents) stay safe while blogging.
Protect your blog from being hacked. Use a complicated password including both letters and numbers. Make sure it is at least 6 characters long.
Use your “street smarts.” Avoid giving out any personal information like names, addresses, school names, birthdays, etc. Remember that any content you post could pop up on an Internet search engine, and divulging personal facts could put you at risk for becoming a victim of cyberstalking or physical stalking.
