Milk-Healthy eating is far closer to hand than you might think.

Hardly anyone goes for basic milk any more- it has to be soy, almond, rice or lactose-free, etc.

But while ‘normal’ cows’ milk does have its disadvantages (the full-fat variety is high in saturated fat and has even been linked to breast cancer) it also has its perks, too. For children especially, milk provides vital calories and protein, together with key vitamins such as B2 and B12.And then there’s the calcium in milk, crucial for keeping bones strong and warding off diseases including osteoporosis. Perhaps think twice before leaving ‘regular’ milk to one side when shopping next.
