Other things with calicum

Another question reminded me I keep forgetting to post this.

My 21 month old hates milk, cheese, pretty much anything dairy. He'll drink strawberry milk and and sometimes chocolate milk but other then that he won't touch anything. He also hates broccoli so that rules out that form of calcium. Anyone know any other calcium things I can get him to eat so he has enough calcium? FYI cereals are out as well.


Doesn't like soy or almond milk. I drink soy all the time but he will only take a few sips and that is it.

  • 2 of my 4 neighbor's kids are lactose intolerant. That is an allergy the sugars in the milk. They are also casein intolerant. I'd never heard of this until I met her. This second allergy is to the proteins in the milk....I think. She's told me several times and I can't remember.

    *Casein is one of the primary types of protein found in milk. This protein can cause an allergic reaction with symptoms ranging from mild to life threatening. Casein allergy is more common in children than in adults. Misdiagnoses of casein allergy symptoms are frequent and often taken for lactose-intolerance.

  • Nope :( He's a a damn good eater but when it comes to dairy things he refuses to touch them. I think he may be Lactose and tolerant and those foods hurt his stomach. Both his dad and I are both lactose and tolerant so it's very possible for him to have it.

  • Easy solution? Talk to your pedi about getting him a calcium supplement.

  • I agree on a supplement if you cannot get it from foods.
