milk products


The American Heart Association recommends two to three daily servings of milk products. Fat-free, ½ percent fat and 1 percent fat milk all provide slightly more nutrients than whole milk and 2 percent fat milk, and are much lower in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and calories. For dessert or snacks, choose ice milk, frozen or fruited low-fat or nonfat yogurt, sherbet, sorbet or low-fat puddings.
