My family loves yogurt. It was a diet staple for me when I was trying to lose the baby weight after Haiden and Piper, and my husband started eating it alongside me. Haiden started loving whole milk yogurt when he had to take antibiotics before he was a year old, and Piper can eat it up like it’s her last meal!
Dannon yogurt is one of the brands I buy on a fairly regular basis. I do make my own whole milk yogurt for the kids, but I haven’t had much luck “starting” a new batch of yogurt with some of the previous one. I’ve found that Dannon’s yogurt just works the best when I’m making yogurt at home. Personally, I like Dannon’s Light & Fit line, because it satisfies my hunger without having too many calories. My husband is not a picky guy, so I buy Dannon Activia yogurt for him at Super Target because I can always get a great deal with coupons.
One reason I’m happy Dannon is a brand frequently found in our refrigerator is because they’re doing their part to support breast cancer awareness and research. Over 290,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and it’s becoming more important than ever to fund research so someday a cure for breast cancer can be found.
Dannon has launched Cups of Hope to raise money for the cause. Under the lid of specially-marked Dannon products you will find a unique code. With each code entered at www.cupsofhope.com by November 30, 10 cents will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. (NBCF). The money raised will be used to provide women with free mammograms and support breast cancer research nationwide. Dannon has pledged to donate at least $500,000 to NBCF, but they’re hoping to donate $1.5 million with our help!
I want to add that it’s not hard to find these codes. I bought a big tub of whole milk plain yogurt and a 4-pack of Activia at the grocery store last week. I didn’t pay attention to the packaging, but I was so pleased to see the special lids on both containers! I’ll definitely be entering them at Cups of Hope!
I absolutely love doing good with products that are already on my shopping list. Since the donation comes at no cost to me, you can bet that I’ll be looking out for specially-marked Dannon products so I can help Dannon contribute to the cause!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Dannon. In addition, I received a gift certificate and coupons to thank me for taking the time to participate.

Very cool – thanks for sharing!
Wow! How cool! I’ll have to share this with people I know around here. We’re a yogurt loving family around here too–and to be able to buy yogurt and help with something as important as this (at the same time) would be awesome!
It’s nice of Dannon, *and* you, to support this. (I like the “with each cup” joke too :)- funny Dannon!)
I haven’t been paying attention to the lids, so I didn’t even realize there were codes there, but now I’ll start punching in the codes.
I didn’t know this about Dannon. There has been a lot of breast cancer in my family so I try to support companies that support breast cancer research. Thanks for sharing!
