Though milk requirement comes down to 400-600 ml per day in second year, with more focus on solids. But three ounces is too less. 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. I hope these give you some ideas.
