Q. How much sugar is OK in flavoured yoghurt?

Q. How much sugar is OK in flavoured yoghurt?

The question in full: Q. Aside from plain yoghurt, which of the non-plain types would you suggest ? All the ones I have looked at seem way too high in sugar. They claim to be low fat / no fat/ diet / no added sugar but they are still so high in sugar ? I am confused with all the brands in the supermarket.
