Hi Sudha,You can go the natural way. Add nuts powder rather than the ones available in the market.

Hi Srijna,Hope you are doing good. Ayurveda does say that you should not mix together yogurt and fruits as per their belief. However we being nutritionists and the ones who deal with different doctors as well,there is a practical approach that we need to take up. We are not ayurveda practitioners hence need to adopt an approach we suits the everyone. Right from our childhood we have been drinking milkshakes and smoothies & touchwood we are hale and hearty. So being a mother you can take up a particular practice if you feel it is right for your child :) However every child is different and so is his preferences. Hence sticking to one book or norm would not work. :)

Hi Drishti,Hope you are doing good. You need to check with a pediatrician as to what could be the possible reasons. Was potty training done early on ?

it's a great relief for mothers whose children just have no place for milk in their menu. it shares the goodness of milk and also shares some wonderful yummy alternatives which can easily replace milk without leaving the child being devoid of any of the nutrients. thanks Huda Shaikh for sharing this useful blog

Thanks for sharing this However Milk , Yogurt and fruits altogether should not be consumed. Fruits should never be consumed with milk as per ancient ayurveda rules which is now even followed in the entire world. Fruits should be taken empty stomach and consuming milk with fruits produces harmful toxins. Yes you can go with the combination of milk and spices.

Hi Sejal,Then why not make a smoothie ?If your child loves curd ,add some milk,fruits and make a nice yummy smoothie. When it comes to a child ,there is no phenomenon of compensation. Each and every food product is important for the child (during the growth phase) and most importantly every child needs to have have the habit of consuming all food groups be it dairy,cereals or good fats. Hence try and introduce milk in some or the other manner,there are amazing tips above :)
