A littleProtein can change a lot
Protein is an essential part of a healthy, balanced diet and ideally should be spread across the day to form part of each meal.
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but many Australians are only getting 15% of their total daily protein intake at breakfast time*. Thankfully a little change, such as swapping your milk, can change a lot when it comes to spreading your protein intake across the day. The Complete Dairy offers a high protein option that can be enjoyed just like your regular milk - on your breakfast cereal, in tea or coffee, in a smoothie or in your favourite recipe.

The complete Dairy and protein
With 15g of whole dairy protein in every 250ml glass, The Complete Dairy is an easy way to get more protein into your morning routine to set the tone for a nutritionally balanced day. It's fresh milk you can enjoy just like your regular milk - with your breakfast cereal, in tea or coffee, or in your favourite recipe, but with 70% more protein than regular full cream milk which contains 3.4% protein.
Why is protein important
Protein is an essential nutrient that, as part of a healthy balanced diet, plays an important role in growth and development, and maintaining muscle & bones.
The building blocks of protein are amino acids. And while many amino acids are made naturally by our bodies, others need to be regularly consumed as part of a healthy balanced diet. Dairy foods are a complete protein, containing all the amino acids that our bodies need.
