Yogurt is a great food, except after the food industry gets hold of it and adds excessive amounts of sweeteners, colors, and artificial flavors.

Better: Buy plain or lightly sweetened organic yogurt by the quart and pack it in small containers with fresh fruit, chopped dry fruit, or a little fruit spread. Making your own yogurt from organic milk is very easy, takes no special equipment, and will save you even more money.
