From two years-it is recommended that you give reduced fat milk (and other reduced fat dairy products) to your children from the age of two years. it is best to wait until the age of five before introducing them to skim milk. if you are trying to get older kids drinking reduced fat milk, start by giving them half full cream and half reduced. gradually reduce the quantity of full cream milk over time and theyll never notice the difference! Milk is a really nutritious drink for kids of all ages: it is just a matter of the right milk at the right age.
