My daughter doesn't like milk at all. To feed her milk is a task. Can milk be replaced by lassi and more intake of curd? Doesn't that mean the same?

If your daughter does not like milk don't worry. Milk can be given in the form of curd, buttermilk, cheese, and paneer. CURD is nutritionally rich in protein, calcium, riboflavin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. It has nutritional benefits beyond those of milk. Curd may also be used in preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhoea. Curd is believed to promote good gum health, possibly because of the effect of lactic acid present in curd. Buttermilk is lower in fat than regular milk, because the fat has been removed to make butter. It is also high in potassium, vitamin B12, calcium, and riboflavin as well as a good source of phosphorus. Those with digestive problems are often advised to drink buttermilk rather than milk, as it is more quickly digested. Buttermilk has more lactic acid than skim milk. Paneer is a great source of calcium, which is helpful in maintaining strong teeth and bones. Due to its low lactose content, it protects the teeth against harmful sugars.

Yes, you can surely replace milk with other dairy forms -- cheese, paneer, curd, ghee. It worked for my daughter. Eventually, she took to milk during tea time with us :)
