My 22 mo old recently started refusing to drink milk. Any suggestions on how to get him back into it?

You could try fruit smoothies.  A ripe banana and milk makes a simple smoothie. 



A friend of mine gets her son to drink milk by making Ovaltine. 



My daughter usually likes milk, but when she resists I offer it when she's thirsty. When she wakes up from her nap she is looking for a drink.  If she asks for juice I just say "no" until she finishes the milk.

my nephew stopped drinking milk one day also...so my sister-in-law started making chocolate milk...or strawberry milk instead...it seemed to work. he drinks it just fine.

Nutrapals is a very good flavored milk drink with extra vitamins, my daughter LOVES it.



They have it at Walmart (baby dept)

my son went through that  at about 18mo. I added a little bit of strawberry flavor and he's 3 now and he still loves his milk

How about trying milkshake mixers ??  I went through the same thing, and still am, she rarely drinks straight milk, so i keep her stocked up with lots of yogurts and cheese etc and add lots of milk to her food, ie porridge and mash etc
