Study: Kids Who Don’t Drink Cow’s Milk Are Shorter

MIAMI (CBS4) – A new study says kids who don’t drink non-cow’s milk are shorter than those who do.

For each cup of non-dairy milk they drink per day, children were .15 inches shorter than the average. That adds up to about a half inch in three years.

Researchers looked at more than 5,000 cases of kids between the ages of two and six.

Now, those studying the results are working to find out if kids who fall behind by drinking non-dairy milk can catch up later.
