    OK to warm up fresh milk?

    My son is ok with fresh milk but he doesn't like it cold. Is it ok to warm up the fresh milk with a sauce pan? (I don't want to use microwave oven) Will it kill the nutrients?
    Thanks!

    yes it is fine to warm up milk. My dayhome provider used to do this and my children started to like it, so occasionally I do for them. I realize I am assuming you mean cow's milk. If you mean breastmilk, it is fine to warm that up too, of course If it is boiled likely the antibodies won't survive, but it is still completely fine nutritionally.

    many people drink warm milk before bed...think of hot chocolate, that's warm too!

    personally, i don't like warm milk unless there's chocolate in it, but if your son will drink it, then great!
