- Serve with skim milk for a low-fat, high-fibre breakfast. Skim milk contains all the calcium of full-cream milk but with less calories and fat. Reducing fat intake by consuming low-fat dairy products is an important way you can improve your diet.
- This muesli is also fantastic with low-fat yoghurt, another good source of calcium. Calcium plays an important role in building and maintaining healthy teeth and bones, and you need to eat three servings a day.
- Add sliced banana or other fresh fruits for additional vitamins to promote healthy eyes, skin and sperm. However, be aware that fruit contains a lot of natural sugar, so you should only eat the equivalent of two serves per day.
- When purchasing ingredients, check the food labels and choose the healthiest option. For example, choose dried fruit with no added sugar and natural, unprocessed bran.
