The Full Cream Difference
Out at the supermarket, you’ll probably notice a variety of dairy products on the shelves. There are full cream milks such as Nespray Full Cream, skimmed, low-fat, or regular milk. What are the differences? And how does full cream milk benefit your child and family?
The main difference between these milks is in the number of calories and fat content. Full cream milk has a higher fat content of around 3.25% total fats, resulting in a higher calorie count of 150 kcal per serving. Low-fat milk has less than 1% total fat content and lower calories of about 102 kcal per serving. Meanwhile, skimmed milk only has a total fat content of less than 0.5%, and the number of calories per serving is around 83 kcal.
Regardless of the fat and calorie content of these different types of milk, they can be part of a healthy & balanced diet. In fact, the Malaysian Dietary Guidelines recommend consumption of 2 servings of milk & milk products daily. And for younger children, it’s important to provide sufficient energy to meet their needs for their daily learning & growth.
So, you don't have to worry about giving milk to your children and family as long as you keep an eye on overall calorie and fat intake throughout the day and consume milk at the recommended amounts.
