Aver­sion to dairy foods

My five-year-old son doesn’t like dairy. I am wor­ried about his lack of cal­cium and that it will af­fect his bones and growth. Should I opt for a sup­ple­ment?

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - MEDICAL Q&A -

You will need to pro­vide al­ter­na­tive sources of cal­cium and pro­tein. Soy­beans, tofu, tem­peh, sesame prod­ucts, canned salmon with bones, and green veg­eta­bles are some op­tions. I sug­gest you see a di­eti­tian who has ex­pe­ri­ence with chil­dren.
