New study finds children who avoid milk are more likely to break bones, be overweight A recent report documented First study to link lack of milk to Increased fracture rates A new study in the February issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that children who avoided milk were more likely to experience fractures and be overweight than a compari- son group of more than 1,000 similarly aged children. The study is the first to link milk avoidance to increased frac- ture rates. "Children who regularly avoided milk had lower bone mineral density and weighed more, two factors that increase fracture risk," said lead researcher Ailsa Goulding, Ph.D., FACN, pro- fessor, University of Otago, New Zealand. "Children and adolescents need 3-4 serv- ings of dairy foods each day to help prevent broken bones now and chronic conditions like osteoporosis as adults." The study compared the fracture histories of 50 chil- dren who avoided drinking milk for extended periods of time to a group of 1,000 chil. dren from the same city, Dunedin, New Zealand. The children who avoided milk did not eat food substitutes or supplements. Nearly one in three of the young milk-avoiders had broken a bone before they were eight years old, fre- quently from slight trauma such as a minor trip or fall.

"Dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt are packed with nine essential nutrients that are necessary for strong bones, healthy teeth and better bodies," said Connie Diekman. R.D., director, University Nutrition, Washington University, St. Louis. "With the wide variety of dairy foods available, from low fat flavored milks to yogurt snacks and string cheese, parents and kids cgn choose from a number of convenient options for every taste and budget ." Dairy foods provide three quarters of the calcium in the diets of children and adolescents. The daily rec- ommended intake (DRI) for calcium in adolescents aged 12-18 years is 1,300 mg -- the equivalent of four serv- ings of milk, cheese or yogurt. For children ages 6- 11, the DRI for calcium is 800 mg or three servings every day.
