For most children, a healthy and well-balanced diet incorporates components from each major food group that nourishes their body and plays a significant role in development. A question that commonly presents to those of us in primary care is what role dairy should play in a child’s diet. Rich in nutrients and health benefits, most dairy products are key components for building and maintaining strong bones. Today, we are going to be discussing both the blessings and the challenging implications dairy can have on a child’s health.
Today, I am happy to be speaking with my colleague, Dr. Stephanie Gilley.
Stephanie works in our Growth and Parenting nutrition clinic here at Children’s Hospital Colorado. She is also an instructor in Nutrition at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Resources: Twitter for pediatric healthcare professionals.
