... does your child drink each day?
Vitamin D and iron are crucial nutrients, especially for toddlers' growing brains and bodies. In this study, researchers confirmed that there's a tradeoff between the two when consumption of cow's milk exceeds two cups a day.
"We found that ... around two cups a day is appropriate. For the average child, any more milk than that seems to reduce iron stores," explained study author Dr. Jonathon Maguire, a pediatrician and scientist at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto.
Interesting! Does your toddler get enough? Too much? How many cups a day does he/she drink? Is he/she drinking formula or breast milk still or have you switched to whole milk?
