Water: The only drink for which the human body was designed is pure water. Milk is for cows to give to their calves until they can eat grass. It is not a health drink for humans.

Many alternatives: Bovine milk is a simple way for kids to get the calcium they need for strong bones. If allergic, soy milk or almond milk are acceptable alternatives. If the kid can get feta (goat)cheese or other calcium sources, there as no need for a milk like product.
