Right, by now you know that milk should form an important part of your diet. But do you know how to shop for milk? If you know what to look out for, you could save a lot of time, money and effort – and still reap the bone-boosting benefits.

Take action:
Buy fresh milk in two-litre containers – they're usually cheaper per unit in relation to smaller containers; when there's a sale on milk, stock up, and freeze for later use; buy UHT or long-life milk in bulk when it's on sale – you can keep it for up to six months; powdered or dried milk is the least expensive milk option – mix it several hours before required and refrigerate it (this is ideal for cooking); the freshest milk is usually positioned at the back of the refrigerator – select your milk from the back row; and remember to always check the expiry date on dairy products.
