Our expert says:
According to the SA Food Tables 1 glass (300 ml) of low-fat or 2% milk with Milo, but no added sugar, contains 7.2g of fat and 990 kJ. No values are given for low-fat milk and chocolate powder, but the Tables do list Milo powder (1.2g fat and 260 kJ per 15 g or 1 Tablespoon) and Drinking Chocolate power (0,5 g fat and 220 kJ per 100 g of 1 Tablespoon). Based on these figures, I would reckon that the drinking chocolate per 15 g has a slightly lower energy content and a much lower fat content. Remember that the energy value will increase with every tablespoon of chocolate or milo powder and every teaspoon of sugar (81 kJ/teaspoon), you add.
Using fat-free milk instead of 2% milk, will reduce the energy content of the Milo milk down to 810 kJ per 100 ml.
