Must singers avoid dairy products completely whether its prior to singing or other times?

As I find that I can't seem to be controlling my breath. Does drinking / eating dairy products such as chocolate etc stop us from mastering our breath and vocal range, if it is so, how do I reach my full vocal range and master my breath for a good quality voice?
