What he's learned

This morning, Devin complained of a tummy ache. I hope it was for nothing. And, I offered him some milk, telling him it would coat, soothe and relieve his upset tummy. Trevor piped up and said, "that's right! Milk is neutral and will neutralize the acid in your stomach."

Is this true? I don't really know. But, I think milk is slightly acidic and therefore is unable to neutralize acid. I'll let him know later today. He may have been getting milk confused with milk of magnesia...
