When you say overweight, how much does he weigh? How tall is he? Has your doctor expressed concern? Is he active? I also wouldn't switch him to low fat milk but I would eliminate the formula before bed.

How tall and heavy is he? I would not switch a child of that age to low fat milk unless on the advice of a doctor that is well acquainted with my child... no matter what any mom on the internet has to say about it. ;)



Does he drink a lot of juice? Many sweet treats? 'Junk' foods? I'd look to cutting down/out on those first.
