Which food is the best supplement for milk?  My son doesn’t like milk. He had lactose intolerance when he was 7 months old .I stopped giving him milk and he had Nestlé’s product nestum, rice. Now he is 3 years old but I want to start but he refuses to drink. He drinks but in a week 500ml. He likes to eat all solid foods including all junks.

His pediatrician suggested curd/yogurt but that also he refuses. Should I worry on this or is it fine. Can I start soya milk now? What is the appropriate age to introduce soya milk? How about introducing tetra pack flavored milk. Suggest good cheese to be given as snack. (Which comes in a small pack to be taken to school?) Any suggestions would be really helpful. Thanks. Minu.

Beetroot  and potatoes are great sources of Calcium too (like milk), so you can try and give me beetroot sabji as well as mashed potaoes, aloo paratha etc.
