How Much Milk

Whole milk is full of nutrients for your toddler, but too much can be filling, making him or her less willing to eat other foods needed for a well-balanced diet.

Generally, toddlers should not drink more than 24 ounces of milk per day. Try these strategies to keep your child from consuming too much:

  • Give your child milk after meals, rather than before or during.
  • Try giving a half-full bottle or sipping cup (or less) for snacks.
  • At this age, you can also switch from a bottle to a sippy cup, which may reduce the amount your child drinks, as well.
