Im concerned m 2yr old is not gtting enough calcium in her diet. Other than that, she eats extremely well. We have just had tests done to confirm she is NOT intollerant to cow's milk protein and she does NOT have a lactose intollerence.
In terms of dairy, all she has is about 1/2 cup of milk in her cereal each morning. Most of the time that milk is left behind unless its absorbed by the cereal like oates or weetbix. She's not interested in cheese - at all. even if i add it to cooking like cheesy pasta (i even try ricotta) or cheesy scones.
She's off yoghurt and has been for a while.
Wont drink smoothis ive tried making them with milk and yoghurt - they taste really good too!
Wont touch rice pudding
She eats custard - store bought but that only has 25% full cream milk. The rest is sugar! I dont know how to make my own and i really dont have the time, esp if she refuses it.
She will eat ice cream but i cant possibly have her eating that everday?
She used to have a cup of milk before bed but is no longer drinking it. I refuse to flavour milk. She wont have a cup of milk any other time of the day as ive tried and tried to offer milk instead of water but she goes for the water every time. I heat the milk and i offer it chilled and room temp!
Im out of ideas on how i can add some more calcium to her diet and get her to eat it! Im having a mental blank!
I dont even know how much a 2yr old is supposed to be having but something tells me that 1/2 cup or less is not enough.
