Reducing/Eliminating milk in child's diet

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

 

Hi all,

 

I would like to eliminate milk as a beverage choice in our house. DH and I have no issues eliminating it - but my 3 yr old drinks it like it's going out of style. My 5 yr old could take it or leave it. I wonder if anyone has btdt and reduced milk slowly or removed it all at once?

 

I have tried soy milk and almond milk and it did not fly so this week I will try rice milk. Not looking to completely get rid of dairy but I just don't feel we need milk in our diet. TIA

My 5 yo DD loves hemp milk and coconut milk.  She still drinks cow's milk too, but not as much. Their are a lot of things you could try, but ultimately I like the protein content of the cow's milk if it's not over done, kwim?

I am trying that first- reducing their daily intake and my 3 yr old is already eating more. My 6 yo is fine with less too so I will keep reducing it to a very small amount and they tried rice milk this weekend and  liked it so I will supplement with that.

 

Thanks for your reply!

I love Almond Breeze almond milk. What about the chocolate one? Maybe she would like that? Glad to hear that they liked rice milk.
