We sometimes make our own yogurt, but it requires a 6-8 ounce starter of already-made yogurt. We typically use this Yoplait fat-free yogurt, and it works perfectly. It does not put a strong taste into the homemade yogurt, and it helps keep it low fat (along with using skim milk to make it). At other times, we simply eat this yogurt for convenience sake (as opposed to taking the time to make our own batch). It is a perfect travel size, and provides a great snack for on the road. We will often use it for breakfast as well, mixing it with fruit or granola for a healthy, protein-filled meal. One inconvenience is the foil lid, since it sometimes rips when removing it, and it is also a bit messy. I would prefer for them to switch to the removable plastic lids, since they are less messy. On top of this, if we open a yogurt and don't use it all at once (such as for one of our kids), it would be much nicer to be able to put a lid back on the container.
