Sleep smarts

Milk at bedtime?

My almost-4-year-old still likes to have a cup of milk at bedtime. Is it okay for him to have it?

Routine is important for children, but what about when that routine includes a cup of milk at bedtime? Is that okay?


Michi: Yes, this is fine. You will want to make sure that he brushes his teeth after having the milk.

Dr. Darley: It is fine for him to have a low calorie snack with protein. Other options would be some nuts or ‘ants-on-a-log,’ cheese, yogurt, tortilla with bean dip, etc.
