Calcium intake for 14 month old

Hi, I would like to find out how much calcium is required for a 14 month old toddler per day? My daughter does not like to drink milk, so I currently give her 150 - 200 ml milk in her tea per day plus she normally eats a small yoghurt. Is this sufficient?

This should be sufficient as long as she is eating her yoghurt as well.
