    Default What age to stop giving full fat milk?

    As the question asks, when? My DS1 is almost 8 and we are still giving him full fat milk. He's tall and of good weight.

    Thanks.

    Never

    A lot will disagree, but fats are important. Especially for children. I say keep it up!

    Ive heard so much conflicting information about this.

    At this stage im sticking with full fat. I use full fat milk, cheese etc myself as from my research as long as its in moderation its better for you

    It's totally your prerogative to give whatever you think is best, but personally I do believe that saturated fat isn't the bad guy it's made out to be. It's vegetable oils like canola etc that I try and stay away from.

    Everything in balance of course.

    What's wrong with Canola oil? First time reading that it is bad.

    I am also concerned about saturated fats so very confused as to start giving him milk with lesser fats.

    We have no intentions on stopping full cream milk... both my kids are skinny little things anyway and DH and I still use full cream milk as well.

    I wouldnt stop. I still full fat milk for myself. Unless you're drinking litres of the stuff every day.. i dont see how a small amount of full fat milk in your cereal or a cup a day is going to hurt

    I wonder about this too - I can't have full fat but I can have light so does that mean I should have separate milk for my bub when she's off breast/formula or would it be okay for her to have light milk?
