    Soy is not good, especially for children. Cow's milk you want to get from a trusted source that does not use hormones or antibiotics, preferably grassfed and raw. As an alternative, diluted coconut milk is a good source of fat and nutrients.

    I was/am scared of the possibilities of soy, so we go with regular cow's milk. Organic usually. They really don't drink a lot of it, it mostly goes on cereal or in cooking.

    Soy milk is different to cook with, too. It does NOT make a good cake frosting.
