Hi Sudipta. I think you have a great feeding schedule for your daughter. May I suggest that instead to trying to replace milk with juice, you could give her some homemade juice in the evening in place of coconut water or sugar cane juice. You could alternate between the three. I have always been giving my daughter one cup milk in the morning/daytime before lunch and one cup around 9pm (after dinner). You could try moving the evening cup to an earlier time, if it works for your daughter. Please avoid giving her packed juices as they contain high amount of sugar and barely any fruit. You could make some nimbu pani, lassi, juices from any fresh fruit etc. Juices such as tropicana and the like are ok for an occasional treat otherwise making something fresh is always a better choice :) Take care.

I Agree with Anurima on Juices. I think your daugther is eating suffiently. A mother always feels that their child is not eating properly. But if your child is active and happy that means they are eating suffient. Dont over feed your baby. She is eating everything, but at times if she is not eating its okay. A child also has his own moods so its okay. All the best.

Hi Sudipta, Congrats on being such a caring mom :) I have two healthy girls, 16 and 11 and my only tip to you is avoid any tinned, canned, packed food as they all add toxins to the child's body. I never gave my kids any packaged food like Farex, formula milk or pediasure. If your child doesn't like milk in summer then give her lassi or curd rice. Adding some powdered sesame seeds to her food will give her enough calcium even if she doesn't have milk. Fresh juices or pureed fruits can be given. Please make sure all the food is freshly made and is consumed withing 3-4 hours of preparation. Feed her only when she is hungry. Thats the best way. Good luck and God bless :)
