LONDONDERRY, N.H. -- Stonyfield is thrilled to announce its collaboration with two-time Olympic gold medalist and two-time mom, Amy Rodriguez, for its YoKids® brand.  Stonyfield YoKids, the number one organic kids' yogurt, is teaming up with Amy to share with other moms and dads her tips, tricks and advice for nourishing a young and active family. As a mom to two kids ages four and one, and the youngest mom to win both an Olympic Gold Medal and a World Cup Championship in U.S. Women's National Soccer team history, Amy is no stranger to the juggling act familiar to so many of today's parents.

"We're so excited to have Amy onboard," says Natalie Levine, Stonyfield Brand Director. "I'm a mom to two young girls myself and while most of us – including me - can't relate to the life of an elite athlete, I know firsthand that most every parent can relate to the challenge of finding healthy snacks that their kids will actually eat.  Amy is no different, and we're excited to work with Amy to inspire parents with a look into how she keeps her busy family well-fueled to face the day's challenges."

"Being a mom to young kids is often as challenging as being a professional athlete – on some days, even more challenging," says Amy. "But we just take things one day at a time, and make it work like any other family! What really helps simplify our busy lives are on-the-go snacks, like YoKids pouches and squeezers. Best of all, it's a nutritious snack the kids love eating."

Stonyfield YoKids is the number one organic kids' yogurt. Made with organic milk from pasture-raised cows and free of toxic persistent pesticides, high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors, YoKids is made with ingredients that parents can trust for a delicious, on-the go snack that kids ask for.

"As an athlete, fueling myself with clean, organic food is important – and it's just as important, if not more, for growing kids," says Amy. "Choosing Stonyfield gives me peace of mind, because I know that I can pick up a cup of YoKids without having to think twice about pesticides or the quality of ingredients. And YoKids has less sugar than some of the other kids' yogurts too, which is something I look for in all of our food."

Made with USDA organic, non-GMO ingredients, Stonyfield YoKids is available in four convenient formats, including pouches, cups, squeezers and smoothies; additionally, some varieties now have 25% to 40% less sugar than the leading kids' yogurt*, giving parents another reason to trust Stonyfield to provide the very best yogurt for their families.
