Q.

Milk

Hi Dr.My 3 and a half year Daughter hates drinking milk.I try to flavour her milk ,but she just does not enjoy the taste. How much milk must she be drinking.At the moment I try to force her to have about 125ml.this takes about half an hr. to drink.What can I do?Is there any supplements she can take?

Your daughter no longer needs any milk provided that she drinks other fluids and eats a good mixed diet with dairy products included such as yoghurt [for calcium] Please do not try to force her to drink milk.
