Reccomendation:

When dealing with fruit, eat it alone or leave it alone.  The best time to eat fruit is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. However, if you would like a piece fruit later in the day, wait 3 hours from your previous meal and then enjoy the fruit of your choice. Pairing fruit with other foods can cause fermentation within intestinal tract.

Buuuut, if the only way you will eat fruit is with yogurt or cereal, then by all means…Eat what you can get!
