How Much Milk Should Toddlers Drink Daily for Vitamin D & Calcium? Find Out! by Dr. Hannah Chow-Johnson
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.
