Soda and inactivity will make you fat. No study needed for that. Take the little tikes to the park!

They're probably being fed low-fat milk because they have a weight problem to begin with.

"possibly reflecting parents' concern about their children's weight"

not really accurate, unless they can control the study and their intake

Great work, UVA.

Maybe this will make "public health" advocates a bit more careful about doling out dietary advice. Substituting margarine for butter did not turn out well, and now it looks like there's a big downside to low fat dairy products, too.

What about a follow up study on whether low fat diets lead to weight gain?

Seems like all these man made low-fat foods make most people gain weight it's all a gimmick. I think all natural is the way to go also noticed hormones in most milks affected me slightly then hormone free cows milk

As many people walk out of the grocery store with gallons upon gallons of soft drinks its no wonder. What ever kind of milk a kid drinks is incidental, what the kid has in their diet besides that is key. Obviously thats the point here but what else are these kids eating? If they know what kind of milk they drink can't they also know what else they eat or drink?
