My daughter just turned two. Is it necessary for her to still drink whole milk? Our family usually drinks 1% milk. She is taking a daily vitamin and fluoride.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breast milk or formula for the first year of life, whole milk from age one to two years, 1% milk from age two through 12 years, and skim milk thereafter.  Recently there has been a move to decrease the age for changing to skim milk to five years of age as one of the tools in combating obesity.
