Find dairy foods in the refrigerated and pantry aisles.

  • Choose low-fat or fat-free milk. These products provide just as much calcium, but fewer calories than whole and 2% milk.
  • Buy the larger size of low-fat plain yogurt instead of individual flavored yogurt. Then add your own flavors by mixing in fruits.
  • When it comes to cheese, look for “reduced fat,” or “low-fat” on the label.
  • Always check the sell by date to make sure you’re buying the freshest dairy products.
