Halacha - basar bholov
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: A young child should wait between meat and milk the amount of time he would usually wait between meals. Meaning, if he usually eats lunch at 1 and supper at 6, he may have milk for supper even if he had meat for lunch but he should not have milchig candy in mid-afternoon. However, ther are grounds to say that chinuch is not required on any halacha that is a machlokes and one could be lenient after only one hour as long as the child ate and drank in between. This opinion may be relied on under difficult circumstances.
