Answer:
you can use some attractive cup/glass for milk. Try giving milk when the child is hungry. You may flavour the milk with natural flavourings like elaichi powder, kesar, dates syrup etc. You may give in the form of fruit shakes like mango/banana/cheeku/apple shake. You may even try giving milk in the form of porridges/kheer/custards. Other alternatives to milk are curd/yogurt, paneer/cheese, buttermilk/lassi. For more ideas, you may read up the blog on alternatives to milk. Link given below http://www.parentune.com/parenting-blog/5-healthy-alternatives-to-milk/519
