    Oh try serving a cup of yoghurt with a little sprinkle of hundreds & thousands on top? The colour & fun of it might make yoghurt more appealing for her.

    At 2 the recommendation is only 1 and half serves of calcium rich foods per day
    ( a serve is one cup of milk or tub of yogurt)

    A teaspoon of chia seeds ( add to pasta, baked goods, eggs, sandwiches etc) , has 20% of their daily requirements as does a piece of tofu, a slice of wholemeal bread, fortified cereal plus when you add up all the fruit/ veggies / grains /meat you will be fine without dairy ( and better for iron absorption !)

    Yogurt is probably the best/easiest dairy calcium source if you can get her to eat it!

    We have very limited dairy here. My kids have almond milk, we make green smoothies each day, eat spinach and broccoli etc at meal times a lot. Kids also eat almonds as a snack. We sprinkle chia seeds on breakfast cereal and eat tofu in stir fries.

    I add chia seeds to any meal I possibly can.

    Also, if you do want to try a flavoured milk (if you get desperate) I buy Vitarium Sugar Free Kids Chocolate powder (google it), the packet recommends 4 teaspoons per cup, however I use half a teaspoon and the kids love it. If my eldest doesn't eat much breaky before kinder I give her a cup of warm milk just so she has something in her tummy and she thinks its a lovely treat to get hot chocolate.
