As per the topic, Dd20 mo does not drink milk, (neither do DH and I).
How do I know she is getting enough calcium? She has cheese everyday and yogurt, eats lots of fresh fruit- not so much veg and only drinks water.
I guess I'm afraid she isnt getting enough calcium.

2 serves of dairy, so cheese and yogurt would be enough

I think toddlers are required to 500mg of calcium a day which is two serves of dairy and yoghurt and cheese would cover that, plus leafy green vegies and legumes. If you're worried, you can get calcium suppliments or look for calcium enriched cereals etc...

Sounds like she is getting plenty.
My DD1 did not start drinking milk until she was over 2, she just hated the taste. She got all her calcium from cheese, yogurt, milk on cereal and vegetables, it was never a problem. They don't need as much as you would think to cover their daily intake needs.
