I heard that there is a special milk that is made just for diabetics; is this true? If not, can you tell me what milk is good for diabetics to drink?


People who have diabetes can drink regular skim, 2%, and when under the age of two, whole milk as well. There is not a reason to eliminate milk in the diet of children with diabetes. The same is true for milk products. Milk has a variety of nutrients such as calcium and Vitamin D which are hard to find in such quantities in other foods.
