Did you know …. ?

Milk, yogurt and cheese are important sources of many nutrients, such as calcium. Calcium is needed for the normal growth and development of bone in children, and the maintenance of our bones and teeth. Milk also provides protein, phosphorus, potassium, iodine, vitamin B2 and vitamin B12.

Dairy foods can be easily included and enjoyed as part of a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. The Department of Health’s Food Pyramid recommends three servings from the ‘milk, yogurt and cheese’ food group each day. Five servings daily are recommended for those aged 9-18 years due to the importance of calcium during this life stage.

Examples of a serving from the ‘milk, yogurt and cheese’ food group include a 200ml glass of milk, a 125g carton of yogurt or a 25g piece of hard cheese.
