The research, published in the New Zealand Medical Journal, showed 88 per cent of young children in New Zealand regularly consume cow’s milk and there was no relationship between full-fat milk consumption and the risk of children being overweight from drinking it.

“It is reassuring to see such a high proportion of young children consuming milk instead of alternatives that do not have the key nutrients that milk provides,” Ms Rowan said.
