that actually sounds like a good amount. Most children ( and adults) don't get enough calcium. If you want to get a better idea of how many ounces is good for her age, go to the /USDA website - or if you have her enrooled in day care ask for a meal serving sheet. Day cares/schools have to offer a certain amount of food and drink to meet nutriton requirements. They give out this info if you care to see it, and they break it down by age. ( A day care should have this table posted on the wall in each classroom's food prep/serving area)
