Milkshakes for Kids — The New Healthy Food?

Milkshakes — Health or Unhealthy food choice??

At least twice in the last two months a client mentioned that their doctor recommended milkshakes because their child did not weight enough according to the charts.  This comes with the concern over “fitting everyone into the “right” weight” charts.

Are we advising based on weight or health??  What do we teach our kids with this message?  What about when you have two children — one at the “right” (or even over) weight and the other “under” weight — do we let one kid have it then not the other??   Are doctors the people that should be making these recommendations??
