Dairy

How much, how often?

Provide around 3 serves per day of these calcium rich dairy foods or alternatives. This may be as smaller serves throughout the day, or combined in bigger serves (as your child pleases).

 

*Cereal based beverages, when used as a milk alternative, should be used under the guidance of a dietitian for children between 1–2 years of age.

Lactose intolerance tip

True lactose intolerance (called primary lactose intolerance) is very uncommon in young toddlers. If your little one is showing signs/symptoms of lactose intolerance, this may be secondary to some other gut upset so consult your healthcare professional.
