Including sources of dairy in your meal plan is a great way to get calcium and high-quality protein.
What to choose?
The healthiest choices of dairy products are:
- Fat-free (skim) or low-fat (1% milk)
- Yogurt (regular or Greek yogurt)
- Some reduced fat cheeses
If you are lactose intolerant or don't like milk, you may want to try fortified soy milk, rice milk, or almond milk as a source of calcium and vitamin D.
