Q.

Tums for kids as calcium supplement

My grandchild of 2 and a half years has a milk allergy and drinks rice milk. Someone suggested using Tums antacid for Kids as a calcium supplement. Is that a safe alternative? What about Isomil formula? Do you have any suggestions as he is also allergic to citrus and all milk products.
