Why does WIC provide whole milk for toddlers under 2 years of age?

0

Toddlers (up to 2 years old) grow very fast and their brains are continuing to develop. Extra fat and calories are needed to support this growth. Whole milk is an easy way to be assured that your toddler is getting enough to grow well. NOTE: A toddler should only drink 2 cups of whole milk daily. Follow your Health Care Provider’s recommendations for the type of milk to serve your toddler.
