Each Serving of milk or milk products on this list contains about 12 grams
of carbohydrate and 8 grams of protein. The amount of fat in milk is measured
in percent (%) of butterfat. The calories vary, depending on what kind of
milk you choose. The list is divided into three parts based on the amount
of fat and calories: skim/very lowfat milk, lowfat milk, and whole milk.
One serving (one milk exchange) of each of these include:
Milk is the body's main source of calcium, the mineral needed for growth and repair of bones. Yogurt is also a good source of calcium. Yogurt and many dry of powdered milk products have different amounts of fat. If you have questions about a particular item, read the label to find out the fat and calorie content.
Milk is good to drink, but it can also be added to cereal, and to other foods. Many tasty dishes such as sugar-free pudding are made with milk (see Combination Food list). Add life to plain yogurt by adding one of your fruit servings to it.
