From my close observation i found that my toddler cannot tolerate milk. I tried several brands like NAN, NIDO etc. I found his abdomen getting distorted and diarrhoea started within 2-3 days and i need to stop milk. He is not breast feeding now. His age is 19 months. How can i meet up his calcium demand since i have stopped giving milk?
Other than milk, cheese and yogurt(দই) are excellent source of calcium. You can give your child green leafy vegetables, beans(সিমের বীচি), green peas(মটরসুটি), broccoli, okra(ঢেঁড়স) as calcium rich food. Orange and almond(এক ধরণের বাদাম) also contain high calcium. Many other foods contain calcium but i just mentioned a few that are easily available in Bangladesh. Canned salmon fish is another good source but i am not sure about its availability in our country.
