: My little one hated milk for the longest time. I was under the impression that she needed whole milk and would be deprived without it.... BUT, after talking to her Dr., he assured me that as long as she was getting enough fat intake from other sources.... milk wasn't really all that necessary. Yes, toddlers need fats for brain development, but nothing says it has to come from milk!
Thank you this is what i was told by the doctor and the wic agents. They get enough of this from other stuff they eat usually. Only in situations where the doctor doesnt think they have enough do they give whole milk here.
