NEW BERLIN, N.Y., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Chobani Greek Yogurt today announced a new line of yogurt for kids, Chobani Champions.  The launch marks the first Greek yogurt in the United States made exclusively for children's tastes.


Chobani has combined the nutritional benefits of its Greek yogurt products that traditionally appeal to adults with kid-pleasing flavors for an all-natural line of yogurts that are nutritious, delicious and fun to eat.  The packages include games inside the tray for added amusement.

"At Chobani, we're committed to living the 'Nothing But Good' philosophy," said Hamdi Ulukaya, CEO and Founder of AgroFarma, Chobani's parent company.  "We take our role as America's #1 Greek yogurt brand very seriously and firmly believe good nutrition begins in childhood.  We're pleased to give parents a healthy option for children including the fun and tastiness kids enjoy."

The 2% Chobani Champions line will be sold in 4-oz cups to better accommodate a child-size appetite. With all of the same nutritional benefits as adult-sized 100% natural Chobani products, each cup of Champions packs in 10% of the daily calcium requirement with five live and active cultures including three probiotics and two times more protein than other yogurts – providing 34% of the daily value. Champions will be offered in four delectable flavor combinations, including StrawNana, VerryBerry and HoneyNana, as well as Chocolate.

Since the company's debut, Chobani has steadily added to its family of products, known for its hallmark thick and creamy texture and a wide variety of palate-pleasing flavors. Other recent new additions include Pomegranate and Pineapple flavors. Chobani's Greek strained yogurts are all-natural, gluten-free, Kosher certified and made with hormone-free milk and real fruit on the bottom. The brand also offers 0% peach, strawberry, blueberry, vanilla, honey and plain, as well as 2% plain Greek Yogurt.

Chobani Champions is available in four-pack multi-packs and will retail for $3.99.
