Q.

REFUSING FORMULA

Dear Doc,

My 19 month old son was home with me for 2 weeks on holiday, I sometimes gave him fresh milk with some Nesqucik in.( i know bad of me)
Now he is back at creche and he does not want to drink his formula(nan 3). How do I get him to drink his formula, or ican he still have Nesquick maybe mixed with the formula?
Pls advise
thanks

There is no reason why your 19 month old son still needs to be on the NAN3 if he refuses to drink it.Try him on Parmalat First Growth milk which has a good taste and most children of this age are quite happy about drinking it. If he does not like the Parmalat First Growth milk then try him on regular fullcream cow's milk.
