When I was a little girl, I hated milk.  H.A.T.E.D. it!  As milk is a pretty big staple in a young child’s everyday diet, this was a problem.  Back then, there weren’t many options for kids like me.  My mother couldn’t run out to the store to pick up soy, rice or almond milk as a substitute, though I probably wouldn’t have liked those any better.  Apparently, my pediatrician told her to just feed me lots of pudding and ice cream to get calcium in me.  Can you imagine prescribing high fat, sugar-laden desserts to boost calcium intake?  I was one lucky kid!  But, I’m reasonably sure that today’s modern baby docs would not approve.
