What type of milk does your 3-4 year old drink?

DD drinks 1%.

She drank whole milk until her 3-year well visit. Then ped switched her to 1%.

She's been 50-60th% for weight for a long time now.

Just curious what's the norm (was chatting with a friend about it today).

DD#1 just turned 3 in January and is still on whole milk. She is only in the 20th percentile so the ped said we could stay on whole milk if we want. She only has 1 glass of milk a day though.

wow jacen is on 2%. He's always been in the low weight category, but the ped never said anything about it (to keep him on whole milk).

Re: What type of milk does your 3-4 year old drink?

DD is 4 1/2 and is still on Whole Milk- the ped said since she isn't overweight at all that she can stay on whole.

She really doesn't drink THAT much milk that it would be a concern. Maybe 8 ounces a day- sometimes that is all the major nutrients she gets if she is on one of her snarky four-year-old hunger strikes.

Ped recommended skim milk when DD turned 2.

Organic skim, she is 50th percentile.

I just remember hating the taste of skim when my mom switched the whole house to skim. We switched her to skim before she had any idea what was happeningChat Icon

None. Not since giving up the bottle. We try to replace it with lots of cheese, yogurt etc. She refuses to drink any milk at all.

Organic reduced fat chocolate milk (I think it's 2%). She only has regular milk in her cereal, which is organic 2%.

Re: What type of milk does your 3-4 year old drink?

Our ped said to switch to lowfat at age 2. I went to 2% organic from whole, and still our ped wants 1% - but I can't stand it, so 2% it is.

Skim. It's what DW and I have always had, so after DC turned 2, we switched them to skim. They had 2% milk before 2.

DS drinks skim milk now. He's never been on the skinny side! Chat Icon

He was on whole milk from 1-2, then we went to 1% from 2-3. Once he turned 3 we switched him to skim which is what DH and I drink.

2%

I was going to bring him to 1% since that's what DH drinks but ped said it would be better to keep him on 2%...probably because he's a skinny little picky eater Chat Icon

Re: What type of milk does your 3-4 year old drink?

DS is still on whole milk for the most part, but he doesn't drink all that much... He drinks skim if it's all I have in the house. I have to ask ped again at 4 year visit next month.
