Should an 18 month male child who is on FatFree Soy Milk need a calcium supplement.The only meat he gets is Chicken or Turkey, low sugar and low sodium diet.Thank You.

If the soy milk is not fortified with calcium, then yes, your child may need a calcium supplement.  Chicken and turkey are not good sources of calcium.  Try finding a soy milk that has added calcium and vitamin D.
