Brief Answer: You can substitue it... Detailed Answer: Hi, I don't find any reasons to believe you should not replace cow milk with soy milk. You can go ahead with this change. You can include dark green leafy vegetables for extra calcium. Calcium supplement pills are not absolutely necessary. Hope this helps. Regards
