I drink it after a workout (with low/no fat milk) if it's going to be a while before I have a meal because it's a great source of protein (and calcium). Just don't overdo it with the heaped teaspoons and use a low/no fat milk variety and work it into your daily calories.

I serve of milo (25g) + 250ml skim milk = 193 calories
2.8g fat, 2g saturated fat, 29.3g carbs, 23.4g sugars, 11.5g protein, and 400mg calcium.

Hmmm - looking at the breakdown, the sugar content to carbs is quite high. Still, it's very filling and a lot better than other sugary snacks :P
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

I have cut it out temporarily.

On a typical day, I would have heaps and heaps of it... which isn't really good.

Ideally, have just a bit - it is packed full of Low-GI energy, which is much much better than just a plain sugary drink... not to mention the other good things in it - protein, vitamins etc.

Milo is plenty good for you. It fills you up, and has lots of good stuff in it. BUT just cos it's good for you doesn't mean you should eat piles of it. It's like everything - you can have anything you want, in moderation. Have a normal sized serving as a snack, and you're fine. Have an extra big serving, as part of a snack or when you aren't really hungry, and it's not such a good situation.

I love milo, I eat it a lot. It keeps me full, adds to my calcium intake, and satisfies chocolate and sugar cravings. But I don't eat nearly as much as I used to!!!
