We are going on holiday so I'm trying to run down the perishable items. I'm very low on full fat milk (enough for bedtime mill tonight) but I have loads of semi skimmed. Would it be harmful if DD had that for a day and a half? She's still have cheeses and yoghurts a usual.

I don't want to waste the milk but also obviously don't want to put dd's health at risk. She's 19mo and a good eater.

It wont be harmful at all.

Fab that's what I figured just suddenly thought there might be some reason I didn't know about. Thank you

Semi skimmed had same level of calcium, just less fat. I looked into it when my son wouldn't drink full fat, only semi.

Also you can freeze milk.

Her bones will not turn to play doh in 2 days, - but she might notice the difference, DS2 asked me why I'd added water to his milk when I tried to pass off semi-skimmed on to him. blush

She'll be fine. Not enough something or other (calcium? calories? fats?) to healthily sustain over a long period of time, but absolutely fine as a short term fix.

It's a vitamin D issue.
Enjoy your holiday
