most of us use packaged milk..i am curious to know how necessary it is to boil the pasteurized milk before consuming it.
Theoritically, pasteurized milk should not require boiling.
But, it is common (esp. in Chennai) to get tampered/contaminated milk packets. Packets are diverted mid-way and contents are meddled with, old empty packets are used to sell contaminated milk etc).
Bangalore doesn't seem to face this problem (yet!), But I would advise boiling to safeguard against it.
Many people use tetra paks if they are too lazy to boil :).
Initially, I took the term pasteurised very seriously and did not boil the milk, but after engaging in a conversation on this topic, with someone who has visited one of these milk plants I decided to boil the milk before giving it to my kids.
hi..thanks for yr valuable inputs
Wanted to know if it is advisable to give full cream milk to kids.....my daughter is 14 months old and I still give her Formula milk (Nan3) because I think it is more nutritious....but I want to know if it is safe to give her full cream milk, or is it better to give her toned milk?
some children cannot digest cow's milk-protein..so docs advise to stay from it till the child's first bday..now that yr daughter is 14 months old, u should start cow's milk now..the later u start, the more difficult it will be to digest it..plus children can get very choosy in terms of taste too.
what u can do is gradually wean her from nan..like, if generally u give her 4oz nan-milk for one feed, u can start by 3oz nan milk+ 1 oz cow's milk..if she doesnt show any symptom of indigestion (lose motions, vomiting, crankiness, crying, excessive burping), u can gradually increase the ratio towards cow's milk over a period of time and resort to nan-milk only during outings/emergency.
and yes, children need full cream..toned milk has only 3% fat i guess..which is very less for them..they need fat in their growing years!! (unlike us, who need to lose some fat!!)
