How do I give my vegetarian child enough calcium?

Getting Enough Calcium

To ensure that your child is getting enough calcium, give calcium-fortified soymilk to children who do not consume dairy products. While nutrient amounts of specific brands of soymilk will vary, three cups of fortified soymilk typically provide about 420 calories, 18 gm of protein and 600 mg of calcium, all with only 9 gm of fat.

Why would you give children or anyone for that matter soymilk. Yes it has calcium but it has been genetically modified as all soy in the States is GMO. Does not make for a healthy alternative to milk.
