love natural, that's a bigonus in my book, they could have an astronomical amount of sugar. so y have to know what you're buying. >> what's the sugar criteria, what do we need to know? first when it comes to the kids yogurts, they're going to be smaller, only four ounces, my personal criteria is no more than 14 grams of sugar. and these are two brands that meet the cup. but the regular more traditional six-ounce containers, there's a little bit more leeway bause they're bigger. look on the label, no more than 20 grams of sugar per container. >> after that you're not doing yourself any good? >> it's so much sugar, you're going to get a high and then a crash. >> greek yogurt seems to be the trend of year, is it better for you. >> ty strain out some of the liquid for a cleaner consistency and it has twice the protein of
8:41 am
traditional yogurt. but all greek yogurt is not created equal. but this is a regular full fat 7 ounce, it had the same ap of saturated, artery clogging fat. >> so i can eat the ice cream instead? >> but the good news is the very same criteria for the regular yogurt works for the greek. you want no more than 20 grams of sugar per container and all of these brands fit the bill. we picked a 2% bluebry that's fabulous. there's a dannon, there's a brown cow there,'s a lot of different vary it thes. >> in a perfect world, you could have all the control, you could start with plain, nonfat or low fat yogurt, stick with one
8:42 am
teaspoon of either honey or maple syrup, and then sprinkle on all of these healthy toppings. even a crushed graham cracker or a whole grain serial and a few tricks that i like to do, i swirl in natural applesauce and then i'll sprinkle on cinnamon, ta-dah, apple pie yogurt, a scoop of pumpkin puree. and pumpkin pudding, or crush pineapple in it's own juice and crushed coconut. > >>. up next how to prepare for the unexpected when it comes to your personal finances. but first, this "today" on nbc. martin o'malley sworn in. inherits a billion-dollar surplus, low umployment. o'malley signs the bgest tax hike in maryland history. raids chesapeake bay fund to cover spending.

8:45 am
>> back now at 8:44, this monk on "today's" money, preparing for the unexpected. would you be able to handle a sudden job loss of an unexpected illness? what you can do to prepare for perhaps not so good news. she's also the author of a new book called "psych yourself rich" i want to mention that the reason why we're doing this segment is inspired by a woman who on skype told us that she found out about hundreds of thousandof dollars in credit card debt in her husband's name after he died. so we're thinking about what everyone needs to know fundamentally in terms of their finances. >> you need to have a reality check before things go bad. because doing that will help you understand whaare the areas that you need to improve upon. d the first is savings. so know the exactly how much every single penny you have in
8:46 am
savings "toda s today. most of us could not cover a year's worth of living expenses if we lost our jobs today. the average job hunt is taking about eight to nine months so imagine you're out of work for that period of time. you can track your savings on things like mint.com and bundle.com so ally saving is where most people have their biest weakness. >> you just need to check your bank account all the time. >> there's applications, you can download to your phone and you can check your statu on the go. the second is debt. just like savings, how much do you have in debt, not just your mortgage, but your car loans, personal debt from a previous marriage or credit card debt. add it all up, it's a hard really check, but you want to do this when you're calm and you don't have that emergency, that adrenaline going through you, you would rather deal with this now. next you want to think about what is my credit ore? >> why do you need to know is?
8:47 am
>> a lot of times we apply for loans and we find out uh-oh, i don't have the credit score that i need to qualify for the loan that i want. the best credit scores right now are in the 700. you can check your credit score for free. knowing your credit is an important part of that health checkup. >> that's what everyone needs to do. >> yes. >> what about before you get married? you fall in love, but let's talk about money. >> let me just tell you this, we tend to marry our financial opposites. behavioral studies show we find our opposites, if i'm a saver, i will marry a spender. so it's about disclosure. how much do you think? so many couples don't even think to talk about mon before walking down the aisle. how much do you make? what assets do you v assets are
8:48 am
really important because if you'reoming into the relationship with property or business, it may be time to think about a prenuptial agreement that can protect you from a fallout in the marriage. >> if you're married and you haven't had that conversation, you need to have that nversation because you need to not be surprised? like the woman whose husband just died. >> also recognize that it's natural to take on certain roles in the relationship financially. more oftentimes or not, someone will be the chief financial offir in the family and that's something they want to do, they'll take care of the bills, they'll be on top of all that, but as the other person in the relationship, you want to switch roles to make sure that if something happened and you have to step in, you know where all th documents are kept, you know how to pay everybody. you want to have a running list so it will look like a crib sheet of lawyers, in particular your estate planning attorney
8:49 am
who can rer you to the will, the living well, the health care proxies. also you want to ask to know your lenders, not just mortgage, but auto lendersr student loan lenders, so you can step in and manage these financial obligations if your partner cannot. and so lots to think about. >> historically, i'm not sure if this is still the case today, but historically women were less likely to be aware than their husbands of all this stuff. so it's good to get this information. >> you want to know thisow when you're calm and not when you're all -- coming up next, the beaver remembers his tv mom, barbara billingsley, but first t

8:53 am
>> reporter: billingsley and the leave it to beaver cast reunited numerous times over the years, while billingsley admitted her association with june cleaver made it hard for her to do other things, but she went on to say, as far as i'm concerned, it's been an honor. barbara billingsley was 94. >> jerry mathers played the beaver on leave it to beaver and mainined a lifelong friendship with barbara billingsley. jerry, it's good to see you. >> it's nice to be here, it's not the best of circumstances, but it's a pleasure to be here because she was a wonderful woman and she was very much like june cleaver. she was a wonderful person and i'm just blessed to have even known her. >> our condolences to you and all of your friends and fily members. she played your mom on tv during those years. but in some ways, she was kind of america's mom, wasn't she? >> she was, and she was a wonderful mentor to me, i knew i
8:54 am
had a real mom, but i always knew that barbara was there for me, she was like that with everyone. she was the most kind a giving person, she was a philanthrop t philanthrost, she supported many, many charities and i did some charity work with her, but she was always out there helping other people. >> do you have a favorite memory? >> i said that bbara in some ways taught me manners and one of the things she did one time that i still remember is, i was a very rambunctious child, i had a lot of energy and one time we were going to a door and i was all excited, i think it wasome sort of a press thing and i was gog to walk out the door in front of her and i kind of brushed in front of her, and she grabbed me by these little hairs and gave me a gentle pull. and then she told me with a big smile, jerry, ladies always go first. she was just like that, sheas
8:55 am
so kind and i knew that if i ever had a problem that she could help me th, she would be ere. and she would do that for anyone. she was the nicest person you could ever meet, not june cleaver, but even nicer. >> jerry, al roker here, what's her legacy goi to be do you think? >> you know, leave it to bieave is the longest running show on television history. it been on now for 53 years. i think people will know, when it was going on, cowboys and indians and gangster movies were the only thing that the world saw, and leave it to beaver and the other shows that were situation comedy suddenly came out and i think barbara set an image. people always said, no one can live like that, no one could except barbara. barbara had a wonderful life and she was in many ways like june cleaver and not that this character was based on her or that she tried to follow it, that was the real barbara billingsley. >> you're so nice to get up early.

clorox disinfecting wipes. an interesting new information on how the first nine months before a child is born can determine his or her life forever. "today's" chief medical editor dr. nancy snyderman explains. >> reporter: from the moment a woman knows she's pregnant, the pressure is on. >> the coffee, the shell fish, the alcohol. >> not to be stressed out but your hormones are making you stressed out so some people will tell you you're being selfish by being stressed out but you can't help it. >> reporter: there could be more affecting the developing fetus. sewing the seeds for health and disease over a child's entire lifetime. >> many studies are now showing that these early insults can affect not only the child
10:20 am
development, but also can increase risk of certain chronic diseases in adulthood. and these include cancer, heart disease, psychiatric illness, and even obesity. >> reporter: the placenta is not a perfect barrier, and much of what is in the mother's environment passes over to the unborn baby. but to what extent? at the center for children's environmental health at columbia university, they're studying the effects of air pollution and pesticides on the developing fetus, by handing out backpacks, pregnant women across upper manhattan and the south bronx. >> the backpack, inside is a small pump which sucks the air in through this hose and inside is two filters on which vapors and particles are collected. >> reporter:he women wear the backpack for two days and researche then follow the mothers and their children through birth and childhood. >> we found that children who had higher prenatal exposure to air pollutants were more likely
10:21 am
to have lower birth rate, developmental delays at e 3, lower scores on iq tests and even increased behavioral problems when they were ages 6 to 8. >> reporter: andat the psychiatry department of columbia, researchers are literally putting the fetus on the couch to see how the mental state of a mother affects the baby she's carrying. results show that babies of depressed mothers are more reactive to stress than the babies of mothers o have no history of psychological problems. >> how she's dong and her emotional life is going to potentially make a different environment for that fetus in a wayhat would have influences on how that by's going to develop in the future in terms of its temperament and personality. >> reporter: more evidence that pregnancy is a crucial staging ground for us for the rest of our lives. dr. nancy is here with annie murphy paul, the author of "origins: how the nine months beforeirth shape our lives."

welcome, leadies. >> it is so interesting. you think about grown-ups with diseases th i used to think that was genetic. but this study is saying that maybe that's not the case at all. big teal. >> yeah, we think of it as genetics as adult lifestyle choices, what you eat, how much you exercise, but it may that be your mother's lifestyle, while she was pregnant with you, is a factor as well. this is -- >> we have known that about alcohol. we have known that about cigarettes. >> but what this is really is saying perhaps the genetics, this ideahat darwin was all about -- that it takes centuries and it is the survival of the fittesthat perhaps in two generations you can tweak genes, epigenetics and not things off a little bit. when i first became aware of it, it was the research comingout of the irish potato famine, where they found those mothers who were severely stressed, and malnourished and had underweight babies, those babies then wt on to have disease later in life. that was the worst time we said,
