Do you give your children 2% milk or vitamin D whole milk?

The reason I ask is bc today my dh and I went grocery shopping and We usually get whole milk but this time I was reaching for the 2% milk and my dh says no not that watered down stuff. I'm like...ugh! Ok whatever I did not want to start a small arguement there at the store :/

  • My Son is 3 1/2 and I have chosen to continue giving Him whole milk. I heard it's best to give a child whole milk until 5 years old.

  • 1%, I got tired of buying so many different kinds of milk, so the compromise is that we all get 1%
    Because I like Skim, husband wanted 2% and I was buying whole milk for the kids, not enough room or money for all of that.

  • We drink both. I've learned from getting WIC that at one they want kids to get whole milk because their brain needs the fat, bones need the calcium, and most of the body needs vitamin D. But they switch the kids to 2% at two so that the kids don't become obese.
