Nutrition Assessment for Infants and Toddlers

If your toddler is drinking another kind of milk, make sure that it is fortified with vitamin D and calcium. Look for a higher fat version, if possible, because babies need the fat for growth and brain development.

Offer your toddler two to three servings of milk each day. Keep in mind that serving sizes are smaller for young children.

One-year olds

Milk, whole - 1/2 cup (4 ounces)

Cheese - 1/2 ounce (1-inch cube)

Yogurt, whole milk - 1/2 cup (4 ounces)

Your toddler does not need more than 2 cups (six ounces of milk) per day. Drinking more than that may not leave room for other healthy foods.
