How much calcium??? Lock Rss


Hi all, my 3 year old won't drink any milk or eat any milk product(cheese ect) since I wean him when he's 13months. The only thing related to milk he love is -- chocolate!! I'm worried about his calcium intakes so I'm thinking of giving him calcium supplement as in a tablet form.

So how much calcium does a 3 yr old needs? I only know they need 700ml milk/day, but how much calcium is there in 700ml milk??? Very confusing .....

Has anyone have this problem? Do you give your kid calcium supplement as well? Thank you!

Hi,

Yes its 700ml milk daily or 2 slices cheese or 1 tub yogurt= 200ml milk.

My DD didnt like dairy either so I grated cheese and put it through her meals. Does your son like milkshakes? try adding flavour to the milk. I also cook meals for her that includes milk or cheese.
I think you can get a supplement from the pharmacies.
Hope this helps a bit.
