You can use fat-free milk and yoghurt for your toddler with Prader Willie syndrome and also make sure that he does not overeat. Removing the fat from milk and dairy products does not affect the good quality protein and the high calcium content of dairy products. Before you cut out the Nido I would recommend that you do try and see a dietitian because these children need to be monitored for their entire lives to prevent them from a) getting to overweight and b) ensuring that they ingest the nutrients they require for normal growth during their childhood and adolescence.
