Child Hates Milk

If your toddler doesn’t care for milk, try not to worry about it. In much of the world, milk is not the staple of children’s diets that it is in North America.

The primary nutrients in cow’s milk—calcium, vitamins D and B12, and protein—can all be supplied by a well-balanced diet that does not include milk. Milk is a convenient package of several key nutrients, but not an essential one.

Just don’t replace milk as your child’s beverage of choice with sugary juice or sodas. Clean, cold water is a better alternative, and the more you serve it, the more likely it is that your child will ask for it when thirsty.
