Kids who don’t drink cow’s milk are shorter, says new study

A new study says dairy alternative milks are linked to shorter children.

According to the report, each cup of non-cow’s milk consumed daily is associated to a loss of 0.15 inches in height compared to the average for a child’s age.

For example, a 3-year-old who drinks three cups of rice, soy or almond milk each day would be more than half an inch shorter than a 3-year-old who drinks three cups of dairy each day.

One reason for the difference in height might be that plant-based milks do not stimulate insulin-like growth factor production as well as cow’s milk does.

Some experts worry the study may be misleading, saying taller children are not necessarily healthier.

Children’s migraines

37 million adults have migraines, and it could be many children could also be undiagnosed. A new study finds parents may be able to stop the hurt before it begins by paying closer attention to their childrens’ behavior.

About 10 percent of school age children suffer from migraines. By age 17, almost one in 10 boys has had a migraine. For girls, it’s almost one in four.

And there are warning signs, like fatigue and moodiness, up to 24 hours before their heads hurt.

Some moms give their child ibuprofen, a big glass of water and an order to rest, reading the signs in hopes of heading off a migraine before it’s too late.

The study is in the American Journal of Clinical
