Fortified juices: While there are many sources for calcium apart from dairy, sometimes the issue is getting the child to eat it. The easiest form of calcium is probably calcium-fortified fruit juices.

Several: If you like the fluid sources, soy and goat milk are common substitutes. Many orange juices & some tea's have calcium added. Tums has a chewable wafer that can provide adequate daily calcium in a simple form, & taking it doesn't bother digestion.
