Why dont you try soya milk, it comes in a lot of flavours, like strawberry, vanilla, choclate etc. In India it is available both in bottle as well as tetra pack,I think most of the young boys like the strawberry flavoured soya milk. I do not from which state you belong to, but soya is available in plenty in all super markets. Regarding Complan, even though it is a good health drink, the problem is children tend to put on more weight and drinking complan regularly might make your son over weight.

Milk fruit juice and water is all that is needed for children as long as they are having a good healthy diet then they dont need anything else. That said if their diet is poor for what ever reason a vitamin supplement can be useful.

i think the best thing to do is to try different things each day making sure that your boy takes milk daily. you can try different things like hmm.. making a shake with dry fruits. this is very healthy especially for growing children. you can also make shakes with fruits like banana, strawberry, dates etc. try it with his favourite fruit.
