Toronto: Two cups of cow`s milk a day is the exact quantity required by most children to maintain adequate vitamin D and iron levels, scientists say. The most common question parents often ask is how much milk they should be giving their kids. "We started to research the question because professional recommendations around milk intake were unclear and doctors and parents were seeking answers," said Dr Jonathon Maguire, a paediatrician at St Michael`s Hospital and lead author of the study. Maguire and his team looked at how cow`s milk affected body stores of iron and vitamin D - two of the most important nutrients in milk - in more than 1,300 children aged two to five years. They found that children who drank more cow`s milk had higher Vitamin D stores but lower iron stores.
