If your 2yo has yogurt for breakfast, do you still give them milk to drink or do you count the yogurt as their dairy serving?

  • I would give milk if they wanted it. If not, fine, I never counted up their dairy servings. They drink a ton of milk.

  • My kids get 2 cups/milk a day and one other dairy. Sometimes it's 2 servings at one time, other times it's spread out over the day.

  • Dairy is a poor source of calcium; more than three servings a day can leach iron and other nutrients from the body. You can find a great listing of calcium rich foods here:
