Q.

Can I give my one year old LONGLIFE MILK

My daughter is one year old and I would like to put her on normal milk. However, we drink full cream longlife milk at home. Would that be suitable for her as well?

There is a move lately to advise using fresh full cream cow's milk for this age group. This has come about because we are waiting for information about whether there is enough iron and other important minerals in the long life milk.I am sure that long life milk is a very good product, but we just need some reassurance.
