Your child is becoming more and more agile with every passing day and even now milk is the most important growth-booster in your child's diet and will continue to be so in the coming years as well.
What you need to know
Milk is one of the most important sources of calcium for your child whose teeth and bones are still growing. Milk is a rich source of protein and vitamins also which is again required for the healthy growth of your child. The amount of energy your little one spends throughout the day jumping and running around needs to be replenished and milk plays a very big role in that. Milk provides fat that can be converted into energy. It is advised that for children above 1 year of age, avoid adding sugar to the milk as plain milk is the best and purest form.
Balanced diet in addition to milk
It is also important to note that your 2 year old child should eat other foods as well. Two cups of milk in the day should be enough for your child if your child is taking enough of the other food items. It is best to keep within the recommended dosage of milk for your child, as giving too much milk will deter the child from eating other food. At this age the right proportion of fruits, vegetables and other protein sources in the diet is also important for your child’s overall growth.
