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...

Find other ways to introduce calcium into her diet.
She doesn't need to drink milk to be healthy there is lots and lots of different ways to get calcium. Cheese, Ice creams (as a treat and check labels) etc.

Hum... I'm not there yet with my L.O. but I would say if she's not drinking it at all, try add it in a more subtle way, like in your cooking. Or maybe have her eat cheese sticks, more cereal? Just some ideas. If she still refuses dairy, there are always mulitvits that can provide more calcium.
