My daughter refuses to drink enough milk. I am worried that she may not get enough calcium and this may affect her growth. Should I give her supplements?
Calcium is, of course, an essential element for young children and infants as they build strong bones, but it is readily available in a wide variety of sources: dairy products, fish, broccoli, and many other common foods. And some of the ones that don’t have natural calcium, like orange juice and breakfast cereals, are reinforced with this element. Even if she doesn’t drink his milk, eating a normal, balanced diet will provide plenty of calcium.
