Getting milk into your child’s diet

Advertisements

Milk has to be one of the great wonder foods, and luckily it is something that most children will drink quite easily. It is a wonderful source of protein with approximately 8g per cup, as well as containing excellent levels of vitamin K, which can be hard to get into your child’s diet if they do not like leafy green vegies.

Consumption of dairy has been associated with adult weight loss for quite a while, but recent studies have also associated low fat milk with the prevention of childhood obesity. Low fat milk is recommended for children over 2 years of age (infants under two need the fat in whole milk for brain development) as it minimises the consumption of saturated fat while still providing all the other vitamins and minerals.
