A new study of more than 1,300 children between the ages of 2 and 5 finds cow's milk can decrease kids' iron levels, but researchers say two cups a day is sufficient to boost vitamin D and other nutrients in most children, with a minimum impact on iron levels stored in the body.
Cow's milk has components that can block the absorption of iron in young children.
