  • I have a 15 month old who drinks about 20 or so a day and a ton of juice, I think its a matter or if your giving him other dairy and other calcuim enriched foods such as cheese during the day.. my son eats cheese sticks and stuff like that at least once a day, and hes a VERY big boy :)

  • Don't know if this holds any water for you but the government guidelines say 16oz

  • The only milk my daughter ever had was mine.
    Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. Here is what the doctors at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine say: http://www.pcrm.org/health/prevmed/building_bones.html
    Harvard School of Public Health, on the Consumption of Dairy Products (2005):
    “The recommendation to drink three glasses of low-fat milk or eat three servings of other dairy products per day to prevent osteoporosis is another step in the wrong direction. … Three glasses of low-fat milk add more than 300 calories a day. This is a real issue for the millions of Americans who are trying to control their weight. What's more, millions of Americans are lactose intolerant, and even small amounts of milk or dairy products give them stomachaches, gas, or other problems. cont. reading here: www.milksucks.com
