BREYER'S LOWFAT FROZEN YOGURT. Vanilla, chocolate, black cherry, strawberry, strawberry-banana, red raspberry and peach. $3.69 to $4.29 per half-gallon container. BONNIE: Breyer's frozen yogurt is a premium product, made without vegetable gums or stabilizers. Instead, Breyer's adds pectin and egg yolks to keep the yogurt smooth and free from ice crystals. Pectin is a thickener, naturally found in fruits. Since Breyer's adds just a tad of egg yolk, each half-cup serving contains only 10 milligrams of cholesterol (15 in the vanilla)

An application by a yogurt manufacturer for a special exception has been approved, allowing the storage of the product in the Huntingdon Valley Industrial Center. The Lower Moreland Zoning Hearing Board voted 2-0 Thursday to allow Colombo Inc., which is based in Massachusetts, to use 1,800 square feet of a 10,000- square-foot building for warehouse space. The remainder of the building at 1647 Republic Rd. is used by Plasti-Seal Corp. Most of the section of the building to be leased by Colombo would be refrigerated, according to Russell Mackey, a Columbo representative who attended the meeting.

Yogurt as a cholesterol fighter? Some brands of yogurt have live lactobacillus acidophilus cultures (read the label!). Current research suggests that some strains of lactobacillus acidophilus assimilate cholesterol in the digestive tract before it can be absorbed into the body. Yogurt has lots more going for it: It has the lean protein of milk and even more calcium (in fact, 38 percent more!). And its enzymes digest some of milk's lactose, so that many people who can't tolerate milk can have yogurt.

Edwin Crotty makes sense. He paves the driveways of his prison farms with prune pits from a juice factory that otherwise would spend $50,000 a year to dump them in a landfill. He uses newspapers instead of straw under the cows in the barn, then re- recycles them out on his fields, where they quickly disintegrate. And he does what he calls "double cropping" with the workers he supervises, inmates at the Skillman Dairy Farm. At the only yogurt farm in the country run by a state institution, 50 resident inmates help produce food for New Jersey's prisoners and mental health patients while they also gain valuable attitudes toward work, Crotty said during a recent tour.

Some years ago, a series of American television commercials linked yogurt with longevity. Featured were the long-living (and, presumably, yogurt-loving) citizens of the Soviet Republic of Armenia. The Armenians are believed to be among the most ancient peoples in the world. The name of the republic's capital, Erevan, is said to derive from an Armenian word meaning "it appears," which Noah supposedly shouted after he first saw land after the flood, before he landed on Mount Ararat.

Ben & Jerry's Low Fat Frozen Yogurt. Blueberry cheesecake, banana strawberry, raspberry, coffee almond fudge, Heath Bar crunch, chocolate, chocolate fudge brownie, and cherry Garcia. $2.59 per pint. Bonnie: Once Haagen-Dazs introduced its line of frozen yogurt, it was just a matter of time before rival Ben & Jerry's introduced one. Like Haagen-Dazs', each of the Ben & Jerry's yogurts (except Heath Bar) contains only natural ingredients and is quite delicious. A 4-ounce serving of Ben & Jerry's Frozen Yogurt ranges from a low of about 160 calories and 2 grams fat for the blueberry cheesecake to a high of 210 calories and 7 grams fat for the coffee almond fudge.

We like this flavorful new line of all-natural, lowfat yogurts with added omega-3 DHA and something called NutraFlora, a soluble fiber to aid digestion and enhance the absorption of calcium. Among the flavors: Cherry Black Currant, Mango Pineapple Passion Fruit, and Pomegranate Blueberry, our fave. Comfort classics These cards hold recipes from the 1950 edition of Betty Crocker's Picture Cook Book , published before that name became known for packaged ingredients. So there are recipes for a flaky pie crust, fluffy meat loaf, even devil's food cake and chocolate butter icing - from scratch . Jumpin' java These new coffee sodas actually taste like coffee.

Investigators won a court order yesterday to obtain fingerprints from Thomas Lee, the 17-year-old Haddonfield youth who is comatose from eating cyanide-laced yogurt, for comparison with fingerprints found on evidence. A Superior Court judge yesterday approved the request by the Camden County Prosecutor's Office to fingerprint Lee in his hospital bed. Officials have said they are investigating suicide as one explanation for the cyanide poisoning. Dennis Wixted, first assistant Camden County prosecutor, said during a brief hearing before Judge A. Donald Bigley that Lee's fingerprints were needed so that they could be compared with those found on pieces of evidence collected during the investigation.

Two FBI agents fingerprinted a comatose Haddonfield teen-ager who is clinging to life after eating cyanide-laced yogurt two weeks ago, Camden County Prosecutor Samuel Asbell said yesterday. Asbell said fingerprints also will be taken from friends and family of Thomas Lee, 17, who is in critical condition at West Jersey Hospital-Voorhees. Rutgers University-Camden associates of Lee's father, Hsin-Yi Lee, also will be fingerprinted. The prints will be compared with those found on items seized from the Lees' Haddonfield home and the elder Lee's Rutgers laboratory.

In a medical system rife with complex equipment and outrageously expensive drugs, a Montgomery County hospital has turned to a cheap, low-tech solution for one of modern medicine's most challenging problems. Holy Redeemer is using yogurt - the kind you could buy at the grocery store - to fight C. difficile, a hospital-acquired infection that has been growing throughout the country. After dietitians began encouraging patients taking antibiotics to eat yogurt, the infection rate fell by two-thirds.

EVERY NIGHT before bed, Sue Patterson packs her 10-year-old daughter, Emmy, a lunch that resembles a work of art. Picture a heart-shaped roast-beef sandwich nestled into a Hello Kitty container, with colorful cups of dried fruit, olives, organic cheese and yogurt-covered pretzels. Or a pink Japanese-style bento box with a California sushi roll, shelled edamame, red grapes and kiwis cut into cute fan shapes. Patterson's a big believer in eating healthy, organic food, so spending 15 to 20 minutes preparing her daughter's lunch is "totally worth it so she can have a good, high-quality lunch every day. " But a lunch doesn't have to be Pinterest-worthy to be healthy and fun. It just takes a little planning and a stock of convenient, kid-approved foods.

JOSEPH OSEFCHEN knew something was up when he noticed a "gap" on the yogurt shelf at the Whole Foods in Marlton, N.J. His law firm is suing the grocer over the sugar content of its 365 Everyday Value Plain Greek Yogurt. But, last week, that particular yogurt suddenly disappeared. "There's a frigging 2-foot hole in the dairy case," Osefchen said. You remember the 18-minute "gap" in the Nixon White House tapes, right? Osefchen also went to the Whole Foods in Cherry Hill and on South Street.

MAYBE IT was just an innocent mistake in the food-testing lab. Or maybe it's a big, fat Greek yogurt conspiracy designed to give the health-conscious grocer Whole Foods the edge in an ultracompetitive market. Don't worry, though. This is nothing that a couple of class-action lawsuits can't fix. Yesterday, the lawyers who made headlines for suing Subway over the length of its so-called footlong sandwiches filed a lawsuit in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court claiming that Whole Foods is selling Greek yogurt with nearly six times the sugar listed on the label.

HALLELUJAH! Fat is back! You'll be happy to know that after years of choking down the banal, tasteless, Styrofoam-like fat-free snacks, desserts and those absolutely awful fat-free dressings, some new research says that full-fat milk, butter and cream are less likely to make you obese. I know, it's a real head-scratcher and sounds counterintuitive, right? But, according to two recently released reports from Europe, the prevailing assumptions about fat just don't support the facts.

As the leisurely rhythms of summer give way to the more frantic routines of fall, those responsible for feeding a family have the challenge of navigating mealtimes around multiple schedules. I have always felt, and research bears out, that sitting down to eat, even for a few minutes, is better than eating in front of the fridge, or in the backseat of the car. Sit-down meals with others promote better eating habits, better relationships, and even better grades. So how can a busy family manage to eat healthy home-cooked meals here in the real world of competing priorities and overfilled schedules?

IT'S A parental terror about as universal as stepping on a Lego barefoot: packing kids' lunches for school and day care. This month's Top Cook, Anita Garimella Andrews, has faced and conquered it. She had to. Because of the family's schedule, she packs three meals a day and two snacks for her 16-month-old daughter, Sanaa. "I think moms who have children who go to day care have similar things to think about as those of school-aged children," said Andrews. "What can I pack that's easy to do, healthful, will go over well and minimize mess?"

This is the ninth in a series on healthy cooking classes at St. Martin De Porres School in North Philadelphia. As our cooking classes wind down - just one more to go! - I still want to introduce healthy meals, but I also long to teach these 11-year-old girls to make something they really love. I figured smoothies were a good bet, and I knew better than to whip up the banana, kale, flaxseed, and almond milk concoctions I love. I'd go with a basic banana-yogurt-honey blend, and present it as an alternative to the fast-food banana milkshake Jayla Reeves loves.

The slant in the sidewalk in front of Bonnie's Toppings self-serve frozen yogurt shop in Stone Harbor has been an irritant to owner Bonnie Offit ever since she opened in May. It made it impossible to put tables and chairs out there, she said. The four steps in front of her yogurt store in Avalon were a pain, too, Offit said, making for a precarious entrance and exit for customers with strollers or canes, or anyone not careful. She will never complain about either again. On Wednesday, the 22-year pediatrician-turned entrepreneur was crediting both structural quirks with sparing her shops from storm damage.
