  • Maybe mix in a little strawberry milk(don't go overboard) and mix it in with regular milk. Add more to their cereals and so on. Sorry, probably not very helpful here:(

  • When I first gave my son milk I added a little strawberry syrup to it to make a light strawberry milk and chocolate milk and he loved it, when I gave him plain milk he wasn't used to the taste so he wouldn't drink it after I did that I had no problem

  • we do not believe that cows milk is a healthy part of a human diet. if you think about it, cows do not drink cows milk beyond infancy, and they have plenty of calcium! humans are the only mammals that consume milk beyond the stage of infancy, and the only mammals that consume milk of another species. your body gets calcium from green veggies!
    milk is the number one food intolerance/ sensitivity! (gluten is number 2!)
    every one should try dairy free for a month, and then add it back to your diet and feel how bad it is for you.
    it is not worth forcing!

  • Your child doesn't need to drink milk. As long as he is eating other dairy or calcium rich foods, he doesn't need milk. Cheese, yogurt, ice cream, cottage cheese, calcium enriched orange juice are all options instead of milk.

  • You don't need milk to be healthy. There are other options for vitamins & calcium.
