@Hetal, Hi, for alternatives to milk you may read my blog on our website. Alternatives to milk is considered because children sometimes don't take the desired intake. Quinoa, chia seeds can be once in a while incorporated in the diet but why do you want to replace them with regular staples like wheat flour, rice, bajra, ragi, oats etc,?

Hi Puja, we are all kind of aware of the different categories carbs, proteins, iron, etc that we all require in the body. The list above goes for all kids not necessary only active kids. I was wondering if you have a more exhaustive list of foods under each category with alternatives like if a child hates Milk, what can it be substituted with - Soy Milk or... ? Or new grains available in the market like quinoa, chia seeds, etc how one can incorporate these in the diet.
