Moms in India feel very happy if their kids drink dairy milk every day. Moms feel cow's milk is very nutritious. Moms feel kids have to drink cow's milk for calcium.
Change is taking place in India! Some kids are lactose intolerant. And kids get cough and cold when they consume dairy milk. So many parents are looking for non-dairy sources of calcium.
According to scientific studies, oranges, oatmeal , soy , almonds, figs, beans, and broccoli is brimming with calcium. I recently read an interesting article -about non-dairy sources of calcium, in a popular Indian website. http://food.ndtv.com/lists/how-to-get-calcium-in-your-diet-7-dairy-free-vegetarian-sources-734515
