    Default Full cream vs low fat

    Just curious as to if and when you started giving your toddler/preschooler low fat dairy instead of full cream? DS is 2.5, has a pretty good diet and consumes maybe 1-2 cups of milk a day- generally on his porridge in the morning and then with dinner. Would you swap him to low fat or keep giving full cream?

    I would keep him on full fat if he is in a healthy weight range and was active and was not eating a fatty diet ( including trans fats) my 2 year old DS does not really drink cows milk but occasionally has it on cereal and has 1/2 tub yogurt a day plus the odd bit of cheese so not enough in my opinion to worry about the saturated fat ( he only eats red meat 2-3 times a week and no processed food)

    My friend's 18 month old DD has a lot if milk so she gives her low fat. I asked her about it and she said that she was getting way more than the required amount of milk product so it didn't matter that it was low fat?

    DD has milk in her cereal abd usually a cup in the afternoon. She also eats cheese and yogurt everyday.

    Does the cheese and yogurt have to be low fat too?

    Full fat. It's only around 4% fat anyway. I believe all this low-fat bandwagon is overhyped and what we should be concerned about is processed foods and sugar.

    This.

    Assuming the rest of the diet is healthy, I think a full fat milk is quite a healthy choice.

    Full fat only in this house...I personally wouldn't swap over to low-fat.

    We switched to low fat milk at 2, but kept full fat everything else. It just made it a bit easier, as I have low fat milk so it was easier to have the same. TBH I'm not really particular about it either way though. Sometimes DH buys full fat without realising, and that's fine too.
