Is Milk OK?
Milk is also a good drink to offer to children. Milk is what is referred to as ‘nutrient dense’ as just a small amount of milk contains a high amount of nutrients, when compared to other drink choices. Milk contains protein, calcium and magnesium, which are important for the development of strong and healthy teeth and bones.
Reduced fat milks should be offered to children over the age of 2 as they contain all the nutrients of full cream milk but a reduced amount of saturated fat.
