Have you gone through the phase where you felt that milk was the mantra for your child’s optimum health? There is always a fuss when children refuse to drink milk. Toddlers can be notoriously picky eaters. And while Milk is a wise choice for calcium and vitamin D, it is not enough. Your growing child needs more than milk to serve his nutritional needs. So, how much is too much? And how to prevent it: Talk to your paediatrician for extra help if your child doesn't seem to eat foods with texture and prefers to drink all of his calories, as he might have a food aversion. An easy way to cut back on your child's milk intake is to simply not fill up his sip cups. There are dilemmas when it comes to providing children the right food, the right care, the right everything. You can never say- that there is a formula that will work. It is different with every kid and understanding your child’s needs becomes the top most priority. But honestly, what does work? There are a couple of means to ensure that your go-to diet is sumptuous with nourishment.
While some children do not take milk products. It's still possible to meet calcium and vitamin D needs every day. Use fortified beverages such as soy, almond or coconut milk. After crossing two years, your child will need a variety of food. Make a chart in order to ensure that every nutrition category gets ticked while being creative with food. And, while food does its bit, just to be sure consult your medical care provider to give nutritional supplements in the form of tonics to your child. With the right approach you will find a way to make your life easier and your child healthy.
