flouride and water softeners

Does anyone know if a whole house water softener removes Flouride from the municpal supply.? I have two young children who don't drink enough milk and I want to make sure they are getting the flouride they need. I have a sears "demand" water softener, three years old. Thanks

A standard 'brine' water softener will not remove flouride from the water supply. An activated carbon filter is about the only thing that will remove some elements such as flouride.
Is your store bought milk flouridated(haven't seen it) , or are you talking about school milk?

Thanks for your response. The reference to milk was the calcium benefit for teeth and bones not the flouride. Thanks again!
