Serving Size of Dairy

by Sharon Maynard RD LD

Experts recommend enjoying 3 servings of lowfat or fat-free dairy foods every day, yet most of us need to add 1 daily serving of nutrient-rich dairy to help meet recommendations.

Milk is a good source of high-quality protein. In fact, every 8 ounces of milk has 8 grams of protein!

Cheese is the the second greatest source of dietary calcium for Americans — second only to milk.

Yogurt is a great option for people with lactose intolerance because it’s live, active cultures help digest lactose.
