How much milk should my toddler drink per day?

How much milk should my toddler (21months) drink per day?

Answer: Hi There,
How much milk you offer tens to depend on what other dairy and calcium-rich foods your toddler is eating. If he or she is eating a good healthy and varied diet, most toddlers will only need about 1 cup of milk or milk alternative, 2 at the most.

I have a tip sheet that explains all of this and might give you more specifc guidelines on the topic, its a good question and a really important thing to get right. Too much and it can cause probles with eating, iron and teeth.

All the best,
