Answer:
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. Link given below https://www.parentune.com/parenting-blog/5-healthy-alternatives-to-milk/519 Include foods like fish, soybean, nuts like walnut, almonds, seed (flaxseed, sesame, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds) in his diet. Give him a balanced diet consisting of dalia, bajra, whole wheat, rice, ragi, different pulses, vegetables fruits, egg/fish/poultry, milk products etc.
