  • dd drinks it 2x a day cereal/oatmeal & dinner time.
    so probably not as often as she should
    she doesn't care for it but we try to sneak it in by giving her yogurt/cheese/ice cream she loves!

  • At that age, my daughter drank a gallon of milk a week on her own. Now she's 16 and polishes off 2 gallons of milk a week - skim milk.

  • No. My older 3 get a carton with their lunch at school. They don't drink it at home. I don't think they need to be drinking milk. They get some in their cereal in the morning (when they eat at home for the older kids) and I use it for cooking. They usually order some when we are out to breakfast. They love milk. If I let them drink it all day like most people allow we'd go through over a gallon of milk a day and we can't afford that, nor do they need that much milk. They drink water at home.
