When to stop giving my DD full fat milk?

She is 2.4 and healthy weight for her age and eats well. She loves her milk and still has about a pint a day. Does she still need full fat?

They can have it from 2 I think although no harm in sticking to full fat.

But dd1 went into semi straight away as I can't have full fat in the house.

you are ok to give semi skimmed milk from age 2 but avoid skimmed until age 5.

I work in a pre-school and we stop full fat milk at two.
