Skim milk

Price per ounce: 3 cents Calories per glass: 80 Fat per glass: 0 Protein per glass: 8 grams Sugars: 12 grams Vitamins per glass: Vitamin A: 6 percent; Calcium: 30 percent Best for: Anyone age 2 and over who isn't lactose intolerant. It has the exact same nine essential nutrients as whole milk but doesn't have any of the fat, Cundith said. Beware: Cow's milk can be difficult for your body to digest and absorb, and your body can't easily take in all the calcium that it contains, said Kimberly Snyder, celebrity nutritionist based in New York and Los Angeles.
