How Much Milk Should Toddlers Drink Daily for Vitamin D & Calcium? Find Out!

When a child is older than age 1, he or she can get vitamin D from other food sources such as cow’s milk. I recommend:

  • Kids drink 14 to 16 ounces of milk a day to meet the recommended daily allowances of calcium and vitamin D for bone health
  • Also, many cereals and breads are fortified with vitamin D, another good source for toddlers

If you have any concerns, always consult your doctor.
