Is low-fat dairy really better for you?


We assume that low-fat products are automatically better for us but a new study at ECU looking at children's consumption of dairy could turn that assumption on its head.

The Milky Way Study is trying to find out if low-fat dairy is actually healthier for kids.

We assume that low-fat products are automatically better for us but a new study at ECU looking at children's consumption of dairy could turn that assumption on its head.

Dr Therese O'Sullivan and her team are investigating the difference in children's health after three months on a low-fat and full fat dairy diet in the world-first Milky Way Study.

They'll compare gut health, cardiovascular health and obesity of about 50 children from around Perth as part of the study.

They hope the study's findings will provide good quality evidence for future dietary guidelines for children.
