Our expert says:
Children below the age of 13 years, need more calcium than adults namely about 1300 mg per day. Because milk and dairy products are the best source of readily available calcium, and milk contains a bit more than 1 mg of calcium per ml, they can certainly drink up to say 3 glasses of 300 ml each (providing 900 mg of calcium) a day, i.e. about 1 litre each. It is a good idea to use fat-free milk as this reduces the saturated fat and energy intake.
