Consumption of cow's milk alternatives linked to shorter stature among children

June 20, 2017

Children who drank alternatives to cow’s milk — including almond, soy or rice milk, as well as other dairy milk — were shorter than children who drank cow’s milk, according to research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

“The nutritional content of cow’s milk is regulated in the United States and Canada, while the nutritional contents of most non-cow’s milk are not,” Jonathon L. Maguire, MS, FRCPC, MSc, from the department of pediatrics at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, said in a press release. “The lack of regulation means the nutritional content varies widely from one non-cow’s milk product to the next, particularly in the amount of protein and fat.”
