Just wanting some feedback on what kind of milk your children are drinking. my kids drink skim as there doctor recommends children be switched to skim milk by the age of 2. because of high obesity rates and high fat intakes. My childrens grandma totally disagrees and says they should still have whole or 2%. i think as long as they are getting adqueate fat intake from other foods it doesn't need to come from milk also. just wanting to know your opinion!Answer Question

My daughter drank breastmilk until she weaned at 23 months. Then she drank water. Cow milk is for baby cows, and humans don't need it. Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. While cow mild is rich in protein, the kind of protein that is contains is casein, while human milk protein is lactalbumin, with is easily digestible; more the 50% of casein isn’t digested and can cause health problems later in life, like food allergies. Here is some of what the doctors at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine say: http://www.pcrm.org/health/prevmed/building_bones.html
