Yes: You should pay attention to her fat intake after weaning, when there is really no need for milk in the diet of any mammal. Current evidence suggests that americans too often choose foods high in fat and cholesterol that leads to increased risk of heart disease. Encourage high quantities of fruits and vegetables, use only skim milk, and consider meatless, eggless meals several times a week.

If you are overweight then you should not increase your calories/day and focus on eating unprocessed diet of vegetables and fish.
