Should my breakfast always include dairy?
There’s nothing magical about eating dairy products at breakfast, but it’s not a bad idea to include them. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s dietary guidelines recommend three servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy products per day, so including one at breakfast gives you an early jump on meeting your quota. Dairy products are a good way to get calcium, vitamin D and potassium nutrients most people don’t get enough of. One bonus is that studies show consuming dairy can help with weight loss. The best breakfast would be a combination of protein, fiber and healthful fat to rev you up for the day.
