White spots on nails
I have made an appointment for my 18 mnth old with the Paed but he can only see her on 18th Oct. My daughter is healthly, eats well but doesn't drink milk.
The white spots on her nails, could this mean that she lacks calcium although I am giving her calsuba powder 2 X per day in her porridge and she also eats 2 full cream yogurts daily.

your reply is much appreciated.

This can be quite normal,but is usually due to a recent respiratory infection.It is not due to calcium deficiency.
