worried mom

hi doc, my daughter is 16months old and refusing to drink milk. she has always been a fussy eater and thankfully since 2weeks back she' s been eating well incl fruits and vegetables. the problem is milk, she is on Nido 1 or cow milk. she refuses both, the best she can do is 100ml a day, eats yogurt tho very much, what can i do to make her drink her milk, or i shouldnt be concerned as she eats her solids well. i also give her water and juice as her fluids, which she likes. ive tried to give her the milk in the morning before anything else but still she refuses. help

Your little girl is eating a good mixed diet and drinking plenty of fluid. She does not like milk anymore. You can try to add a little Nesquik to her milk twice a day but if she refuses to drink this there is no need to worry too much. If she won't drink any milk you will need to give her a calcium supplement. Speak to your pharmacist.
