I had an e-mail this week from Change4Life that said it was ok for children aged 3+ to have semi skimmed milk to drink.
I thought that it was recommended only to swap children from full fat milk aged 5+ (not sure where I got that from though!)
DS2 has just had his 3rd birthday. He's a big chap (top percentiles for height and weight) so is swapping him to semi skimmed milk (he still has some in the morning and before bed aswell as some daytime drinks) appropriate?
Hmm, I thought it was 2+ = semi-skimmed is ok, and 5+ = skimmed is ok.
DS is 2.8 and has semi-skimmed now. I'm still bfing as well though so I doubt that switches to skimmed or semi skimmed I'd just wait until he gets to the milestone for the milk you usually drink at home.
