I have tried every way to get my daughter to drink milk.. Adding strawberry and chocolate.. Trying big girl cups.. Nothing is working.. I know she needs to drink it because it is healthy.. But I have no idea how to get her drink it...

try heating it. neither of my sons would drink cold milk. I don't know where you live but we have Braums here in Texas and my boys can def tell the difference.

Have you maybe considered that she's sensitive to milk proteins/fats? My oldest boy is so he can't handle anything above 2% and he's been complaining about it lately too. I would maybe try giving her some soy beverage and see how she takes to it. The biggest reason that homogenized milk is pushed by physicians is the fat content for brain developement so I would maybe substitute by adding a little bit of E.V.O.O. to her meals or even to the cup of soy milk. I hope this helps some.

Leave it aside for a while and try in couple of months again? They are so many other healthy foods, dirnks & supplements, if she doesn't drink milk - she has other options - eating yogurt, cheese etc.

I had to buy organic milk only...my daughter refuses to drink regualr milk. The organic has a sweeter taste and she loves it now, not to mention it really is better since it doesn't have any chemicals at all....If there is a whole foods near by they have some by Smithfield creamery....its really good....Hope this helps.
