I add a spoonful of strawberry milkshake powder to the milk - ds 2.7 won't touch it otherwise and won't eat any other dairy. I know I'll probably get flamed for that but I don't think it's much different than a sugary yoghurt or a cake as a treat etc. It does have added vitamins as well.
My two year old has never drunk cow's milk. She stopped breastfeeding just after she turned two and just never accepted other milk. I just don't worry about it, she has plenty of dairy. She'd fill up on it anyway and not eat her meals. I personally wouldn't give her formula as I'd much rather she got her nutrients from food.
My DD (who was BF until 2) hasn't ever drunk a drop of cows' milk or formula - she won't touch it and never has no matter what we do. She will put away any amount of yoghurt, sour cream, cheese, milk in porridge etc. so I don't worry at all
It's not really needed, despite the milk companies making us think it is. Naturally and nutritionally its meant for baby calves - not weaned children! Just let her eat a varied diet and she will get all nutrients required.
