As with most things in your life, reduction and balance is key! Not having any dairy at all may damage your body, whereas having too much could also have the same outcome.
In accordance with nutritional guidelines, we should all be getting just about 2-3 servings of dairy each single day.

So, one serving might be a smallish pot of yogurt, a smallish ‘matchbox’ piece of cheese, or maybe a 200ml glass of milk.

Firstly, quite a number of dairy products are incredibly rich in calcium and protein. Calcium is actually required by the body to build strong and healthy bones and teeth, and protein is a building block of the body, assisting the body to restore and build itself.

Fat free milk can still offer you exactly the same amount of calcium as whole milk, plain yogurt or low-fat frozen yogurt and low-fat versions of cheese are all great ways of avoiding the fat while still maintaining a healthy measure of dairy. Getting your intake of calcium from milk is your ticket to getting your daily dosage naturally.
