Many people in today’s busy world have found that a fruit smoothie with soy milk is a great way to get essential nutrients on the go. Research shows that soy milk is good for you and your family because it is rich in protein, fiber and calcium. It is also a good choice for people who avoid dairy products. Many doctors, like Dr. Alan Greene, a pediatrician at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, recommend choosing foods made from whole organic soybeans.
