dislikes drinking milk
Q: My baby who is 2yrs old dislikes drinking milk. As a concerned mother what should I do?
A:The most important thing to remember is that just do not force your child to drink milk. The more you will nag the more he will trouble you. Sometimes children use this to seek more attention from their parents coz they know that its a matter of concern for you. If he does not like milk, try giving him other foods which are equivalent to milk such as milk shakes, curd, custard, icecream, pudding, kheer, fruit cream, butter, eggs etc. Children usually like milk shakes or flavoured milk better than plain milk. You can give him chocolate shake, mango shake, banana shake or even hot chocolate. There are chocolate flavoured protein supplements available in the market, you may try using any of those. Since he is 2 years old now he can eat a complete balanced meal like you. Concentrate on other foods for a while and then start giving him milk again.
