Milk suggestions for kids 3 years old and up

For parents with toddler-kids, may I know what milk brand you give your kids starting age 3? We looked and asked around but were advised that maximum age of milk brands available in stores is up to 3 years old. My son is mixed-fed and has been drinking Chirumiru by Morinaga since he turned 1. Although he is already eating regular food, he still asks for milk in between meals and before bedtime. He is turning 3 soon and we still don't know what milk to give him. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance for your responses.

    We give regular cow's milk for our kids after they graduated from follow up milk. I buy through Coop, one of their own brands, as they test for radiation and have a Hokkaido milk that isn't mixed with milk from Tohoku like a lot of other cow's milk in mainland Japan.

    I've been giving my 3 year old regular dairy milk (the kind you get in a 1-liter carton for 100-200 yen) for the past year with no real complaints. She was still demanding a bottle for about half of this year, but we stopped her special milk options when she was around 2. Now it's the normal, low-fat milk the rest of the household uses. I'm not sure how many other milk options exist for this age range as I think most people switch over to regular milk around this time.

    Since weaning both my kids off bm a little after 1years old, they have been talking whole milk from supermarkets. Apparently the fat from whole milk helps with brain development. Hope this helps!

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
