Soya milk
hi doc

I drink a glass of Soya milk every morning for breakfast.

I use the Oh so Fresh! brand that can be made up with water.

Is this healthy and what are the pitfalls?

Dear Moks
SoFresh is an excellent product which has been designed to replace cow's milk for individuals who a) are allergic to milk b) cannot drink milk for reasons of religion. Soya products contain bioflavonoids which protect the body against a variety of diseases, so this is a good practice. I do hope that you also eat other foods at breakfast? If not, then start including a breakfast cereal (Hi-bran or oats), fruit (fresh or dried) and wholewheat toast with cheese or jam or peanut butter to provide sufficient energy and nutrients to make up for the overnight fast between supper and breakfast.
