Milk, youghurt & cheese, one serve per day
If you have 1 cup milk with oats for breakfast does this mean you cannot have cheese or yoghurt in any meal or snack for the remainder of the day?
Just want to make sure I have interpreted this correctly.

I think it’s saying one serve of each per day is ok…but no more than that. I read somewhere that if you have almond milk on your oats, it won’t count as a serve of dairy, something to keep in mind.

Hi Megan & Alison,
For milk, yoghurt and cheese we recommend no more than one serve of each per day. So you could have one serve of each if you wish Megan. These types of foods tend to be more calorie dense which is why we have decided to put a limit on them.
On the Food Servings Guide we have listed almond milk as a dairy alternative (for those who might prefer non- dairy options). However, almond milk does not contain a significant amount of protein (or carbohydrates) so don’t think of it as a protein (or carb) serve.
