Description:In the foreground of this photograph, a glass of milk with its blue straw, sits atop a blue table top. In the background sits a white ceramic bowl containing a number of Rome Beauty apples, next to which sits a half-gallon plastic milk container.
Intake of milk and milk products, including fortified soy beverages, is usually less than the recommended amounts for most adults, children and adolescents ages 4 to 18 years, and many children ages 2 to 3 years. Recommended amounts are 3 cups per day of fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products for adults and children and adolescents ages 9 to 18 years, 21/2 cups per day for children ages 4 to 8 years, and 2 cups for children ages 2 to 3 years. (See Chapter 5 for specific information and recommendations.) In general, intake is lower for females than for males and declines with age.
