@madhavi - it's ok if your child is not as fond of milk as you are. You could give your child dairy products other than milk, or milk in other forms like smoothie, chaanch, lassi etc

Hello tanuja, Thank you for letting us know how importance of milk for kids. And can you please clarify me another doubt which is hunting me since a very long time. Some doctors say having a cup of milk just befire going to bed is very good for health(for kids and even for elders). But some say exactly the opposite. Can we have a cup of milk before going to bed?

Hi Isha Sharma, I had the same problem with my 18 month old, she would never drink from a bottle and would eat a little and insist for my milk. The breaking point was when the doc told me that she would not grow property if she does not eat food. The baby does not eat because they know they would be breastfed, and since the drink anytime they want they don't really feel hungry. I had to slow down on breastfeeding feeding, don't stop it completely your baby needs 500 ml of milk, so in the day start offering milk in a glass or sippy cup, I use to spoon feed my girl and give her one spoon to play along. Give at least 3 to 4 hrs of break for the baby to feel hungry. Try applying neem oil on your nipples before breastfeeding your baby in the day, this way the baby would not be interested in milk. Offer milk at night before baby needs to sleep. Slowly you need to change the habit from breastfeeding to sippy cup or glass, I also put a straw in a cup and give her. It takes time and patience. hope it helps.

Good read... just a point to add here, as per Ayurveda the fruit milkshakes should not be taken as they are incompatible food, the best would be to take plain milk, even without sugar..

Hello, the milk we buy in packets or from local farmers are not safe for any human beings ecpecially for children. Do you know why? These milk are from high yield foreign breeds or mixed breeds, this milk is classified as A1 milk, which causes many health issues like High blood pressure, Metabolic degenerative disease, Autism, Diabetes type -1 in children, Mental disorder in old age. But if you can get milk from pure indian cows (desi cows) which is very hard to find, it is highly advisable. Milk of Indian cows contain an amino acid PROLINE which is strongly bonded to another amino acid INSOLEUCINE. Such milk, called as A2 milk has the capability to fight against diseases and disorders of human body like obesity, joint pain, asthma, mental problems etc. A2 milk contains high levels of Omega 3 that cleans the cholesterol deposits of blood vessels. Cerebrosides present in A2 milk increases brain power. Strontium of A2 milk enhances the body Immunity and protect it from harmful radiation. I do not give milk to my daughter she is 9 years now because I am unable to find pure desi cow milk. Anyone interested to know more about this topic, pl comment. We will discuss in detail.
