I will never, ever use reduced fat dairy. Never. I also don't use seed oils (also known as vegetable oil). My entire family will benefit and have improved health because of it. So OP, the answer is never.

I think they say full fat milk is needed until at least 2 years. My eldest is almost 8 and still drinks full fat milk. Her paediatrician said full fat milk is better for brain development than reduced fat milk and there is no reason to change what milk drinks.

We have never stopped full cream milk here and both my children are over 2 and we never will stop. Full cream milk isn't the reasons that people are obese or have high cholesterol its all the other fatty foods that they eat.
DH was bought up on a dairy farm and I used to rent a house on one. We always drank milk straight from the vat with no processing you'll never taste milk better then that. Full cream with lumps on the top

I have no intention of stopping. Reduced fat and skim milk is a no no.. Way to processed.

Another 'never' here. I have heard in the past to switch them over to low fat milk after 2 years old but I disregarded it. I don't drink milk but I eat full fat cheese- I often apply 'would my great grandmother eat this?' to our food.
(eta. Great-grandmother because she is still with us and has talked about this in the past )

I've recently switched the whole family back to full fat milk. Keep an eye on the health recommendations over the next few years, I reckon we'll be seeing the end of the obsession with reduced fat soon
