I am a big advocate of whole foods. I think that your current afternoon snack is healthier than the supplement you are thinking of purchasing for several reasons...soy milk=isoflavins and calcium, cottage cheese=casein protein and calcium, stawberries=vit.C and fiber. Whole foods will probably be more satisfying and less expensive. There is nothing wrong with supps, but whole food is better in most cases.
