Our registered dietitian says that a great choice for toddlers is milk, which contains 16 essential nutrients, including calcium and vitamin D. Serve whole (3.25% M.F.) or 2% M.F. to this age group because it contains essential fatty acids that promote brain growth and development.

For variety, you can also serve yogurt and cheese.

Check out our resource Feeding Children Ages 2 to 5 for more information.

You can find all of these dairy products in your local grocery store.
