Q&A: Whole or Two-Percent Milk?
Once a baby turns one and can drink cow's milk, which is better whole or two percent milk?
After the first birthday, a child can drink cow’s milk as his/her main source of liquid, but it should be whole milk until age two years. Whole milk is four percent fat, which helps provide the higher fat intake required by children under two. After age two fat requirement falls, and the lower fat milk products are fine.
