Is it okay for kids to drink non-fat milk?

Is there something in the removal of the fat that makes non-fat milk unhealthy for kids?

Non-fat or skim milk has the fat removed and thus, has fewer calories. The process doesn't make it unhealthy. Growing kids need healthy dietary fats. Your best bet is to ask the pediatrician which milk is best, which will depend on the child's age and activity level.

Non-fat milk has fewer calories. Growing kids, especially toddlers, needs calories. Talk to the kids' doctor and she what he or she recommends. Kids usually start out on whole milk, then move to 2% during their growing years, but let your doctor advise you.
