few suggestions to help in his milk intake 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, soymilk (above 5 years of age), tofu etc. For more ideas, you may read up the blog on alternatives to milk.
