What kind of milk does your famly drink?

Recently at a doctors visit I was told to switch all my little ones to skim milk. It is amazing how things have changed over time when it comes to these guidelines. I am aware that we do not need the Whole milk that I grew up drinking and enjoy. My husband grew up drinking 1% so we comprimised in the middle by buying 2% for our littles ones. When the doctor told me that we should switch my first reaction is that is disgusting. Oh well but it got me thinking what do other families drink? So Whole, 2%, 1%, skim, soy, substitute, combonations, what does your family drink and why?

  • Whole milk...we love are fat! I We do get 2% for our four year old but anyone under 2 in our home gets whole milk also. I had to drink that nasty soy ,ilk growing up for medical reasons, even though it tastes better now I prefer my children to drink 2% or whole until they are old enough to decide for themselves.

  • I had been drinking skim for over 20 years. My DH was ooged by it initially, but got over it and now drinks it too. When my kids turned 1 I gave them both 2% organic, but as they got older I just started buying skim only and they don't know the difference.

    Skim milk is SOOO GOOD! I can't even look at heavier milk now, so gross and fatty.
