Hi Vishal, thanks a lot for your question! We understand how concerning your daughter's lactose intolerance might be as a parent. While milk is the go-to nutritious beverage for almost every child, it has to be pushed aside when your child is found to be lactose-intolerant. Also, calcium is not the only essential nutrient in milk. It also provides proteins, vitamin D, and potassium.
Fortunately, your daughter can have alternatives to help her replace the lost nutrients that she would have otherwise got from milk. These include eggs, wheat, soy, and fish among others. Check out these articles to help you understand lactose intolerance and alternatives to manage it:
