Which milk is BEST? 🐄 Come on…you know me.
Great post by @kids.eat.in.color✨
I’m allergic to the idea of “the best”. 😜 Just watch my highlight “BLW vs purees,” and you’ll see what I mean. 😊⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Here’s a quick (non-comprehensive) breakdown of milks And some of the nutrients they have. I answer more milk questions in my milk highlights.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🐄Cows milk (and other animal milks): fat, protein, strong list of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🌱Soy milk: some fat (equivalent to 1% milk), protein, plant benefits, some vitamins and minerals, and supplemental nutrients⁣. If you have questions about soy, watch my “Milk” highlight.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🥛Pea milk: some fat (equivalent to 1% milk), protein, some vitamins and minerals, and supplemental nutrients⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🥥Coconut milk: some fat (equivalent to 1% milk), and supplemental nutrients⁣⠀
⁣⠀
🥛Almond, flax, cashew, oat, hemp, etc.: varying lower levels of fat and protein, and supplemental nutrients⁣⠀
⁣⠀
⁣🙋 My recommendation. For kids under 2 without allergies, use animal milk OR unsweetened soy or pea milk. Other milks are not “nutrients dense” in comparison and we don’t want littles filling up on those. They need a high fat diet for their brain development.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
For kids with allergies, use what works. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
I recommend limiting animal milks to no more than 16 oz per day (and not before age 1). I talk more about this in my story highlights. ⁣⠀
⁣⠀
If you choose not to use high fat milks for toddlers, then be mindful of providing a high fat diet in other ways. My “weight gain” story highlight has more info about high fat foods.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
For kids with allergies, older kids or adults, other alternative milks may be helpful sources of supplemental nutrients like calcium, B12, or others.⁣⠀
⁣⠀
Does your child drink one of these kinds of milk?⁣⠀
