Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips

In additional to being a great source of calcium, yoghurt is also a good source of probiotics which can help maintain a healthy digestive system!

For those requiring a gluten free diet, most yoghurts tend to be gluten free but always remember to check the ingredients.
