  • We cook with it- oatmeal, sauces, but to drink, not much. My 20 y.o. son is the only person in the house who will drink milk as a beverage.

  • About 1/3 of a gallon. My dd drinks it 3 times a day, other than that, when we eat cereal or cook with it. My kids drink pedisure or chocolate milk mostly. I don't like white milk and neither does dh

  • None.

  • I cut most milk out of our daily diets. The kids still eat cereal occasionally with it, I still cook with it, but a gallon will usually last us close to a week, if not longer.

  • Two gallons a week for our family of four.

  • OP - have your kids had their iron levels checks? More than three servings a day of dairy can leach iron and other nutrients from your body.

    I buy a half gallon of some sort of milk, and it usually goes bad before it gets used up. We drink water (we don't have any baby cows)
