In the past, we have always stocked the fridge with Silk soy milk, but now I'm finding out that it actually has quite a few hormones in it. So I tried to gradually switch back to organic dairy milk. My oldest son made the switch without too much complaint, but my 3 year old hates milk now and will only choke it down in tiny amounts, he doesn't mind drinking it if he thinks it is Silk, so I know his problem has more to do with the switch and not the different flavor. He will drink it if I put chocolate in it, but I don't want him to have chocolate milk that often. Anyone else have trouble getting their kids to drink milk? Is there anything I can do to make it more appealing without dumping chocolate in it?
its a pain but put the milk in a soy milk container, or in a regular container. he doesnt have to know. after even a month of him drinking it just fine with no complaints, then stop the pooring it into another container and you then can rightfully make him sit there and drink it because you will know 100% it is just him being stubborn. i mean, you still have a right to, but you will also then have more proof doing it this way.
my step dad wont eat generic cereal, so cereal is always placed in a container so he doesnt know its generic and eats it just fine. i know its kinda different, but sometimes you just gotta trick those boys !
you could also get chocolate protein powder to make chocolate milk? its much healthier than even olvoltine. just use enough to make it chocolatey, not the serving amount (its way to much for me and i love chocolate milk)
