Try her on regular milk. At 2 years she should still be on the full cream milk. She may prefer the taste of the long life milk. Add a drop of vanilla essence to the cup of milk, nothing else, but only if she refuses to drink the milk. At this stage she does not need much milk at all, two cups a day in addition to her other fluids such as water is enough.
