Cow milk and the alternatives

Cow milk and the alternatives

It is important not to assume that milk alternatives are the same as cow's milk. 

  • Cow's milk is a very nutrient-dense food, and fortified plant milk doesn't always cover all nutrients. 
  • Cow's milk contains lactose, a naturally occurring sugar, while milk alternatives often contain added sugar, which is harmful to our health.

If you do decide to use a dairy-free alternative, you won’t necessarily be missing out on vital nutrients if you eat a balanced diet.
