Milk, Dairy and Alternatives

  • A serving from this group is 1 cup of milk (or a fortified soy beverage), ¾ cup yogurt, or 1 ½ oz of cheese.
  • Choosing low-fat (1%) or skim products is a great way to maintain nutrients and keep the fat down while you enjoy the foods.
  • Serve vanilla or fruit-flavoured lower fat yogurt as a dip for fruit, or mix with fruit and cereal.
  • Small amounts of strong flavoured cheese such as old cheddar, feta or goat cheese work better than large amounts of mild cheese for most applications. Toss them in salads, pasta dishes, burritos, tacos or on pizza.
  • Try a lower fat cheese such as reduced fat mozzarella, or fat free cottage cheese in lasagnes and casseroles, where there are other strong flavours.
  • Use milk instead of cream in coffee or tea and in place of cream in soup recipes (don’t boil the soups, however – they will separate).
