Our expert says:
With Nesquick, do you mean a mixture of cacao and milk power? If so, I would not recommend this as a milk substitute for your 3-year-old son. If he develops phlegm when drinking cow's milk, then you can try him on soy milk, but check that the soy milk is fortified with calcium otherwise he could develop a calcium deficiency. Milk and yoghurt contain about 1 mg of calcium per ml, so a 100 ml of soy milk should also provide about 100 mg of calcium. Also test to see if using yoghurt causes the phlegm reaction. If not, this would be a good substitute for milk.
