Health Tip: Drinking Alternative Milks
-- Many alternative milk products are available on supermarket shelves, including milks made from soy, rice, almond, coconut and oats.

Alternative milk products may be low in calcium and protein. For children, athletes and seniors looking to up their calcium and protein levels, soy ranks highest among alternative milks, the council says.
