  • My doctor told me whole. They still need the extra calories.

  • Our doctor said NOT to give them skim milk. There's not enough of anything in that. Whole milk is definitely best until your toddler is eating solid foods in a well balanced diet.

  • My boys drink 2%. The doctor said that is fine.

  • I was told whole milk. My children are 13 months apart, so my son had whole milk for a little longer while we waited to switch my daughter to 2%. I would also switch between whole and 2% if that is what was in the fridge.

  • Doctors told me 2% is whats recommended for kids now unless they are underweight.
