Good nutrition is vital for performance, for professional and amateur athletes alike. Making the right nutrition choices is also crucial in supporting those committed to an exercise plan with weight loss goals.

The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommends 2.5–4 serves from the milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives (mostly reduced-fat) food group per day, depending on your age and gender, for a variety of health benefits. For athletes and active Australians, dairy foods like milk, yoghurt and cheese offer extra benefits. Their unique combination of nutrients means they can be used as targeted sports foods to meet specific nutrition goals.
