Skim, not organic, milk best for children
A study released by the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests you can save your money when buying milk for your children, because there is little difference between that high priced jug of organic milk and the more palatable price of the conventional one.
Organic milk is appealing to many parents because it doesn't contain growth hormones and estrogen. But researchers found there was little difference in the concentrations of these substances in conventional and organic milk.
If you are still concerned, purchasing skim milk to reduce your child's exposure to potentially harmful substances. Whether the milk is organic or not, researchers found the concentration of hormones is highest in milk with higher concentrations of fat.
