Dairy has little benefit on children's bone health?

Posted by Xun  |  No comments

Winds again change directions. CNN news and then various other source of news report that recent studies show that milk intake does not help or help little children with bone health, that it is probably better to have some more tofu and juice fortified with vitamin D and calcium.

Good news and bad news for Emma. On the good side, it is probably no big deal that she had been allergic to milk for her first year; on the bad side, she just shook off of the allergy and now enjoys milk very much. She eats her baby cereal with milk, so delicious that I cannot help stealing some. Well, I guess our compass of food and nurtuition just cannot rest on ever-changing ever-scientific reports, studies or trends. Eat what you like!

Another note. Emma has made another leap in her intelligence development. She can recognize more numbers now. She knows zero, 2, 6, 8 and the plus sign. No,no, not their intrinicate meanings that passed along through generations, but just the signs themselves with their Chinese (SiChuan) pronounciations. My parents should be get a award for this.

"Next year, she probably can recite multiplication table?" I teased my mom.
"Not so fast. She can go to preschool at 5" My mom quickly declared defeat.
