How to get 4 year old to drink milk (of any kind)?
My child went from breast milk to almost no milk at all around age 20 months. We've tried cow whole fat, cow reduced fat, goat milk, soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, but he's always been a fan of plain old WATER. Milk just sits around getting warm and getting tossed out. He's almost 4 now, used to be above average on the height chart, but now he's slightly below average for his age. He sometimes eats tofu, broccoli, almonds, coco-yogurt (he doesn't like cow yogurt), and I feel like he's barely cobbling together enough calcium from here and there, and maybe I should push the milk (any kind) more, but not sure how to go about it.
I've tried milk+cereal, but he scoops out as much of the dry cereal as possible and leaves the milk behind.
We're against added sugars so chocolate and strawberry flavored milks are out.
Any suggestions? I would prefer to not use bribery or threats because he's otherwise a healthy and hearty eater.
