Health Tip: Don't Give Raw Milk to Children

-- Raw milk that has not been pasteurized or homogenized can harbor harmful germs.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these recommendations to parents:

  • Never give raw milk or dairy products that contain raw milk to children.
  • Check product labels to make sure they use pasteurized milk.
  • Store pasteurized dairy products in the refrigerator at a temperature of 40 degrees Fahrenheit or lower.
  • Throw away any dairy products with expired "best by" dates.
