How do I get my daughter to drink milk?

Here is my problem she was fine with drinking milk from a bottle but then started to not want the bottle so we stopped it all together after her only taking it once for a whole week. Now the problem is though that she will not drink milk. I have tried it cold, I have tried it warmed up, in a sippy cup (which normally holds juice or water), in a different sippy cup similar to a bottle, and also in a cup with a straw, all she does is takes one sip every time and then refuses it and will only drink juice or water. HELP!?

I add a little chocolate in it to make a chocolate milk and my daughter will drink it. They do make flavorings now that are not as bad for you so thats what i would suggest or dont offere her anything but water besides the milk :)

My daughter will only take milk from the bottle. I wanted to be rid of the bottle by now, but she won't drink it from a cup. In fact, the only thing she will drink from a cup, is water!

She does love cheese and yogurt though, so I think I am just going to have to do away with the bottle and hope at some point she will drink milk from a cup.

Try adding flavoring to it, like chocolate or strawberry. I know it's extra sugar, but at least it gets her to drink the milk. You could also try to get her to take dairy other ways like cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, etc.
