Dear MrXXXXX

Child of 5 years old who is adequately exposed to sunlight and is consumes sufficient milk , does not require additional Calcium supplement.
Excessive loading with Calcium supplement is one of the contributing factor for Constipation.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.
