Nutrition Q & A
Is Whole Milk Good For Toddlers?
After babies reach their first birthday, it’s OK to give whole cow’s milk provided your baby is eating a balanced diet with a variety of foods. If your child is overweight, or at risk for being overweight, your pediatrician may recommend reduced-fat (2%) milk.
Wait until your toddler reaches her second birthday to change to fat-free or low-fat milk. Discuss the appropriate choice for your child with your pediatrician or registered dietitian.
