Answer:
the child in this age should be given five meal pattern, i.e. breakfast, lunch and dinner along with two snacks.This would keep the child full. Milk can be given around 400-500 ml in the entire day. So you may give it in breakfast and evening or may give it at night. It is not necessary to give it at night. You can use some attractive cup/glass for milk. Try giving milk when the child is hungry. You need to keep trying and be firm about not giving bottle. You may flavour the milk with natural flavourings like elaichi powder, kesar, dates syrup or flavoured milk supplements. You may give in the form of fruit shakes like mango/banana/cheeku/apple shake
