My 2 year old toddler does not like milk. He hardly has 100 ml throughout the day. How can I give healthy replacements to milk to ensure he gets enough calcium and protein?
Although milk is a good source of protein , calcium and fat and most toddlers like having milk, you need not fret if your toddler does not want to have those 2 glasses of milk every day.
Also, there is an increasing incidence of children who are lactose intolerant. These children cannot take milk as it causes allergy.
If your baby likes cheese, you can add that in his food. Add it to sandwiches, pasta, noodles. You can even add grated cheese to khichdi or dals or various soups. A slice of processed cheese is supposed to have similar nutrition as one glass of milk.
You can give curd to your kid. Add fruits to make them into smoothies.
