From a senior paediatrician, I hear that drinking milk doesn't benefit the child at all. On the contrary, it results in more gas. While he doesn't recommend milk at all, he also advised us to strictly stop milk as an advice for cough and cold for my child

@Chanchal, you can check this with your consulting doctor as curd/cheese are also milk products only. You can however use soy products.

drvaijayantivartak Hi, you may give soy chunks. Try and give curd/paneer/cheese/buttermilk. If child is not even taking these, then soymilk can be given (over 2 years of age). You may even give tofu which is soybean product. Milk can be given in desserts like kheer, porridge, custard, payasam.

Diana Irani Hi,Apart from 2 bowls curd you may give cheese or paneer daily. It can be incorporated in cereals like chapatti/sandwich. You may also give cubes of these with mild seasonings, and with fruits/vegetables. You may even try milk based desserts like custards, kheer, payasam.

Neha Gupta Hi, till your daughter is on your feed you need to take care of your calcium intake as well. This would help both you and your daughter. If she doesn't like milk as it is, try adding milk to her porridges for breakfast, to vegetable soup, cheese/paneer to chapatti. You may even give some fruit based dessert like custard, apple/carrot/paneer/ghia/pumpkin/sago kheer.
