Milk is a nutrient dense wholesome food which can be consumed by children over the age of 1 year.
According to National Dairy Council, just one glass of milk provides the same amount of Vitamin D that you would get from 100g of cooked salmon, as much calcium as 2 1/2 cups of broccoli, as much potassium as a small banana, as much vitamin A as two baby carrots and as much phosphorus as a cup of beans.
Milk is fortified with Vitamin D and it is a major source of calcium and protein. Calcium in milk gets easily absorbed in the bones. Vitamin A and lactose increase the absorption of Calcium. One litre of milk is known to provide approximately 1,200 mg of Calcium to the body. Both Calcium and Protein are essential for growing kids to build strong bones, teeth and muscle tissues.
Children deprived of Milk have higher chances of bone fractures and significantly higher healing period due to lack of Calcium and Proteins which aid in regrowth of bones and tissues. Milk is the best and richest source of Calcium and Protein for a growing child.
