Too Much Milk

Did you know?

Large quantities of cow’s milk (more than 32 ounces per day) can interfere with the proper absorption of iron, increasing a child’s risk for iron deficiency.

Additionally, drinking too much milk interferes with a child’s appetite and willingness to eat regular food.

A two-year-old should only be drinking 16 oz of low-fat or non-fat milk each day to provide the right amount of calcium.
