Some families turn to skim milk or non-fat milk as a healthy drink instead of whole milk. Fortunately, this is a good thing. Skim milk has just as much nutritional value as whole milk. Your children won’t miss out on calcium. Plus, skim milk does not have fat.
You should also know that Vitamin A and Vitamin D are added to reduced-fat and low-fat milks, because these vitamins are found in the fat of the whole milk. Fortunately, this means that you are not missing out on nutritional value.
Don’t be worried about feeding your children low-fat or non-fat milk. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests that these are the best choices for children.
Always check with your doctor regarding questions on your health for you or you baby.
