Children ages 4 to 8 years: around 2 1/2 cups of milk (or dairy equivalents) per day Low-Fat vs. Whole Milk Some families choose to switch their children to low-fat milk after the age of 2 years. The different types of “milk” that kids might drink include: Cow’s milk (including whole, 2%, 1%, fat-free/skim; organic; condensed; evaporated; grass-fed; flavored, such as chocolate milk) Dairy alternatives (such as rice, almond, soy, coconut, cashew, hemp, and oat) Goat’s milk. Children should usually switch to reduced-fat or low-fat milk once they are two years old or younger if they are overweight.

Soy milk, almond milk, and rice milk, etc., are good alternatives to. Babies under 1 year should not drink regular cow’s milk, although yogurt and cheese can and should be introduced after 6 months of age. Once your baby turns 1, you can offer whole or.

Giving your child low-fat milk can encourage healthy habits that will stay with them for the rest of their life. Kids who start drinking low-fat milk are more likely to choose it as teens and adults. Soy milk, almond milk, and rice milk.

Cow’s milk contains nutrients such as vitamin B1, modest amounts of vitamin C, vitamin D, niacin and folate. It also contains minerals that boost the body’s bone formation when our bodies are. Between two and three years old, children should consume 2.5 servings of dairy per day.

The AAP recommends that children stay on whole milk until they are two years of age — unless there is a reason to switch to low-fat milk sooner. Whole milk contains approximately 4% milk fat. You can offer your child whole cow’s milk after 1 year of age, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Children between the ages of 1 and 2 require a higher-fat diet for proper brain. At this age, you may give your baby whole milk in place of breast milk or formula. Most mothers in the United States wean their babies by this age.

But it is also fine to continue to nurse if you and your baby want to. Do not give your child low-fat milk (2%, 1%, or skim. Mother’s milk contains the exactly correct proportions of fat, cholesterol, protein, and carbohydrates for baby humans.

Mother’s milk is not only a perfect nutritional choice; it also provides protection against.

In most cases, children older than 1 year can safely drink cow’s milk, and it can be recommended as a rich source of protein, calcium, riboflavin, and vitamin D. The calcium and vitamin D are present in highly absorbable forms, and the protein is highly bioavailable.

  • the problem is cow milk is given in pure form by the vendors as they usually mix powder and water for their profit,.. we can’t believe in that case is Amul taaza safe for 1 year kid,… please reply

  • all in all, milk is nice, but you can get ALL the vitamin and minerals found in it in some other lower fat and calorie containing foods. BUT GOD DAMNED is it delicious with chocolate. 

  • Low-fat milk has been marketed as more healthy for many years because the greedy milk companies take all the good stuff, which is the fat and sell it into butter, cheese… and make more profit.

  • We shouldn’t  be drinking cow milk.  It’s made for little animals with 4 stomachs. We’re not even supposed to drink human breast milk after a certain age.

  • WATCH ��: 5 Healthiest Types Of Bread To Eat

  • Americans….avoiding whole milk to go to mc donald! .‘ here in italy we usually buy whole milk, the low-fat is an exception!!

    learn to eat BETTER, this is the key of health!

  • I use coconut milk. It is good for my weak kidneys, as less potassium. Still gives me protein, i don’t drink it, just use in coffee and shredded wheat. I use the shredded wheat with no salt or sugar added.

  • why did you go into detail about its benefit than trail off about all the bad things about milk?? i dont understand why people dont look at how strong the cons are in this discussion on milk. why not talk about almond milk or coconut milk or cashew milk? are there things wrong with these substitutes? are there benefits?

  • Calories are not just calories, calories from animal fats are better than calories from processed food. Just drink the whole milk, and do some exercise.

  • Skim milk all the way for me; any is potentially good once the person has had a chance to adjust to it over the course of a few weeks, and to each their own ultimately.

  • I’m lactose intolerant and also want to avoid hormones and phytoestrogens in milk I’ve tried them all and settled on almond and coconut milkrice milk is my least favourite.

  • Did you find this list interesting? Would you consider trying any of these alternatives after watching this video? If you enjoyed this video, please give it a like and share it with your friends! ��

  • You are telling as if you are getting 50grams of protein from milk u consume daily. Bull shit. First know that u need 1 to 1.5 times in grams to kilos of body weight ratio to be healthy and fit.

  • I honestly didn’t know any of this I always buy the dark blue cap milk because It looks Better but now that I know that’s been the good milk in general I feel safe now… But still, milk isn’t what it used to be.

  • For someone whos channel name is “brainstuff” you sure lack knowledge about dietary needs. healthy fats are not bad for you at all. In fact its the sugar they add to milk that makes milk bad a lot of the time. In fact high milk fat milk is better for you than the other options.

  • wait no this is bullshit, my mom always buys 100% fat milk, also your aspergers is distracting, no human would see those hand gestures as natural

  • Cow’s milk does not do a body good, that is why they were forced to get rid of that logo. New research proves that cow milk not only does not help your bones, it actually hurts them. People who drink the most cow’s milk have the most brittle bones. Cow’s milk is not healthy for you in any way. Most people after 40 are lactose intolerant any way and people should not be drinking from the tits of a car no matter what age.

  • Got to watch out for liver and minimize fat…. drinking 0%.

    Actually 0% is still quite good. Used to prefer fat milk, hated the low fat versions, but once you get used to eating everything with low amount of fat it’s hardly any different.. rather normal amounts of fat feel oily?

    Seriously, when I tried to eat a bit of milk chocolate it felt as if I was eating sweetened butter.

    That said, it’s my case where I have to do some extra stuff since my liver is getting extra work from meds, normally I doubt anyone needs to care as much about fat in milk.

  • Cows milk leeches calcium out of your bones. Cows milk only has vitamin D if it has been added. Cow milk protein is almost the worst of all proteins. No adult animal should be consuming any animal milk.
    I won’t try any of them. I quit milk at age 12. No substitutes Best choice i ever made. I am now 72 and will never touch milk again.

  • Best is camel milk or goat or sheep milk
    Then, comes,
    Double cream cow milk, which is the best of the different cow milk types! Full cream is fine too. Anything else is a gimmick and a health risk.

  • Here’s a video idea:
    Is It True that Lipbalm Makes Your Lips more Chapped?
    Btw thanks for the video! This helped with my science project:D

  • Not all types of fats are unhealthy. Only saturated fat is bad. Unsaturated fats are good only in moderation. Nobody should completely remove or heavily keep fats in their diet. Balance is key.

  • I agree with him, whole milk is the best. Not sure if it’s because I’m skinny, or love milk (like srsly, I could drink 2 gallons by my self)

  • Rather wish that we were still eating only raw meat and fieldberries than worry that much about what’s good or not for us to ingest.

  • I was hoping you all were going to explain the process of how they extract only a specific % of fat to get 2%, etc. or what about how they get chocolate milk(I mean when do they add the cocoa, etc.).  Also why can I never find skim chocolate milk =/

  • I never understood why we drink another species mothers milk? Oh course if we put human breast milk on cereal; That would be weird. But, wouldn’t that be more normal? I just dont drink it all.

  • Totally related when he said Whole Milk tastes better with Cinnamon Toast Crunch (my favorite cereal). Through the entire video I was thinking, “Cinnamon Toast Crunch would be fucking awesome right now.” And Josh hits me with this revelation. You hit me right in the feels, Josh. Right in the mutha fucking feels.

  • Skim milk is basically much colored water. I have no clue how you can drink it, or enjoy it. (Also if you drink milk and enjoy it, you have superpowers.)

  • Skim milk taste like water. Seriously people 150 calories or 90 who the hell cares. Saving a few calories here or there won’t make a difference there are better ways to loose weight without sacrificing the awesome taste of full milk

  • Cows are treated horribly in the dairy industry. Their calves are stolen from them after just a few days (to be killed and sold as veal (male) or raised as dairy cow (females). Dairy cows are slaughtered at the end of their lives. For a more healthy and non-cruel milk, choose soy or coconut or almond or oat or…

  • I’ve been drinking almond milk for years now….tried soy not bad…but seeing this video I’d like to give oat milk a try…who has tried it is it any good?

  • Actually the fat in milk is the good fat for your body, and most important it helps you to digest the milk itself. I wonder what they do with the fat they get from low fat milk or skim milk. To make butter or cheese?

  • I had breast cancer and was told to stay away from soy because it has estrogen which I still have a hard time believing that plant & people have the same type of estrogen.

  • Did you know that I’m allergic to dairy??? Well,that means I’m allergic to cow’s milk����������But I like homemade almond milk because it’s good.But the price is too expensive because it’s trending.����������������������������������������������

  • Sorry but the only milk that is best for me is cows milk. Mainly because that is the only real true milk to drink. Me and my mother both tried soy, almond, and cashew milks. And they all tasted really disgusting to us. I have yet to tried those other milk alternatives. But why bother when they are going to taste just as disgusting. The only way that those milk alternatives can taste good. Is by adding both chocolate syrup and dairy milk to them. Or if you make smoothies out of them. That way you won’t taste the horrible after taste of them. Drinking them straight is enough to make me want to throw up. Sorry but that is how I feel about those milk alternatives.

  • Fat soluble vitamins, same reason you should not use fat free dressing on salads? The fat in the dressing on the salad actually helps you digest and absorb the nutrients from the salad.

    I really hate how fat became such a negative thing. I forgot where I heard, probably one of your podcasts, but the history behind the “fat free movement” is very interesting and is a good example of how there’s even corruption in science. Plus how corrupted science can affect entire generations.

    Normally I try to be subjective when it comes to scientific findings or theories, but this one went way over my head and I just accepted as factual. Fat is now good… I’m still trying to get over the stigma of fat equaling bad.

    My suggestion to solving this stigma, rename fat to something that doesn’t sound bad. I mean the saying, “you are what you eat” implies, “if you eat fat, you are going to be fat”. See how people easily make that connection, and even if we now know fat is good, many years of conditioning combined with our subconscious makes it a really hard wall to break through.

    Sorry for the rant, it just I really don’t like flawed science.

  • “Fat” doest make you fat, “Reduced fat” products usually are filled with additives and fillers, just go with the whole original version of products

  • Creamline or non homogenized whole milk is delicious. Just shake it well before drinking. Raw milk is the best though if you want all the enzymes and nutrients.
