Q.

nutrition

My two year old daughter is allergic to cow milk, her told me to give her infacare, which I did , but since I have weaned her from the bottle she does'nt want to drink her milk at all, I have tried to put flavours like Nesquick in it, it seems like she can smell the milk, she does not drink it at all. The problem is that I cannot give her other dairy products like cheese, yoghurt etc since she is allergic to cow milk. Please help, where can she get her calcium from?
Thanks

The first attempt may be to try giving her yoghurt and see how she responds. Cow's milk allergy is often not a definite diagnosis and yoghurt would be a good product to try out. You may also ask our online dietician.

At her age you need to consult her caregiver. She needs magnesium to help absorb calcium but it can be dangerous for her age if you give too much

I also wouldn't drink infacare - ugh! How about the normal soy milk - it is yummy and some of them come pre flavoured. She if she will accept those (health food shops have them)

She can get calcium from Broccoli, fish, calcium suplements etc.
