hi my daughter is 4 yrs 10 months. she does not like milk with any malt drink mix like bournvita or horlicks but prefers milk flavored with tea leaves, ginger and cardamom. Is it fine to give her this daily?

tea is not recommended for such young children,you may flavour the milk with natural flavourings like elaichi powder, kesar, dates syrup etc. If the child above 2 years you may use flavoured milk supplements. 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.
