Make sure your child eats from each of the basic four food groups each day:
Meat, fish, poultry, eggs.
Milk, cheese, and other dairy products.
Fruits and vegetables.
Cereals, potatoes, rice, flour products.
In this manner, how many ounces of milk does a 2 year old need?
A 2-3 year old needs two servings of dairy products per day. One serving is the equivalent of 1 cup (8 oz) of milk, 3/4 cup yogurt, 1.5 oz of cheese. So if your child does not eat yogurt or cheese, then you would give 16 oz of milk.

What can I feed my 12 month old?
Babies readily eat cereal, cooked noodles, soft breads, and rice. It’s just as easy to give them enough dairy, since babies this age are still drinking 16 to 24 ounces of breast milk or formula a day. But don’t forget to serve extra protein in the form of chicken, fish, beans, or eggs.
How much milk do you give a 1 year old?
According to the AAP, your 1-year-old can get enough calcium and vitamin D from 8 to 12 ounces (1 to 1 1/2 cups) of cow’s milk – or the equivalent amount of other milk products, like yogurt or cheese. By age 2, your child should get 16 ounces, or 2 cups, of cow’s milk or other milk products each day.
