How much milk/ milk products are toddlers supposed to have at this stage, ie around 13-14 months? Does formula count as milk for "amount of dairy" consumed per day?
I know calcium is very important at this age and am a bit worried my boy/ girl twins aren't getting enough; they prefer watered juice, or even just water, to milk. They have 3-5 ounces of whole milk in the morning, and a 6 ounce bottle of follow-on formula at bedtime. They get a yoghurt for breakfast every second day or so, and often have a little cheese during the day (a cheese string for a snack, or cheese on toast for dinner or something). Is that enough?
