How to make children drink milk? This is most question of mother as kids don’t like milk. It is really very necessary for kids to have milk atleast twice a day. Milk is full of nutrients like fats, carbohydrates , vitamins, protein and minerals. Milk is rich in vitamin B , vitamin D , vitamin A, protein, fats, calcium and phosphorus. It is necessary to keep our bones and teeth healthy. Growing children should have 500 gms of milk everyday.

My son doesn’t love plain milk. Daily adding new flavor to milk was becoming a task for me. Frankly I do not prefer packed protein powder as they are combination of nutrients and preservatives. I was searching for something which could provide flavor to milk as well as nutritive value also. Then I tried making horlicks at home. You won’t believe my son loved it.
