In brief: ?like cheese?
A slice of cheese has the calcium in a cup of milk.
If you can entice her do include cheese, of any sort in her diet, it will help. She can also get calcium in antacid tablets like Tums, (calcium carbonate) that comes in a flavored wafer. Orange juice and some tea are also available with added calcium.
