Since having an upset stomach my little girl willnot drink milk, I think she is reminded of then. She loves cheese and yoghurts but will not have any drink form, milkshakes nothing. Any ideas on how to increase her calcium intake as she is getting white marks on nails from deficincy. Thanks
Do you have a particular reason to think that the white spots are caused by calcium deficiency? I know that was the popular urban myth when we were younger, but that's actually virtually unheard of. White marks on nails are usually the result of minor injuries (e.g. bumping the nail or nail bed on something) or occasionally of a mild zinc deficiency.
If she's eating plenty of cheese and yogurts then I wouldn't worry. If you are concerned give her a chewable multivitamin. Otherwise rhubarb, spinach, tofu, almonds, beans, kale, broccoli or even bread are all good sources of calcium.
I'm living in hope that my 17 month old's current bug and lack of milk will cure her of her addiction. She drinks pints of the stuff and I was wondering how to cut it down without her throwing the cup of water at me
