Do you drink milk?

What variety; chocolate, whole, 2%, skim, soy etc?

If you have kids, do they drink it? What do they like?

I buy 2% .. for a long time I was buying 1% but when Maggie came back home she wanted 2 and I haven't switched back.  

John and I drink it in our coffee- I with cookies and he with cereal.  I never buy chocolate milk,

the girls don't drink as much as they should and the grands love it ..

I never drink milk either. I have heard that humans are the only species who drink milk after infancy... don't know why that stuck with me. Now... it's not that I don't like milk... I love it.... but, I know it contains lots of estrogen and I've been trying to block estrogen so I backed off my milk consumption considerably. We normally have 1% milk in the house though because my hubby likes cereal as a snack. I do have the occasional chocolate milk in a single serve bottle but only once or twice a year.

Not alone. I buy 1% for cereal. Kelsie will drink chocolate but never do any of us drink it alone.

The chocolate milk you can buy in the store is way to thick and chocolatey.  We always have Hershey's in the house and mix our own.

I love milk.   My parents switched to skim when I was a teenager so I have been drinking skim for so long that to me that's what milk should be.   I did the pediactric recommendation of whole milk until the kids were about 2, then they moved to skim as well.  

The kids both love milk as well.   We all drink it with supper every night.   I am sure they would like chocolate, but I never buy chocolate milk so it's not an option.

I have very limited drink options in the house.   Milk, water, a juice (usually grape or orange), or Crystal Light lemonade.   We go through a ton of that lemonade.    In the warmer months I always have a pitcher of sweet tea as well.

Kids drink milk all the time - and we buy skim milk. That was the one smart food choice I made in college - Mom always bought 1%, and when I got to school the dining hall only had skim or 2%, so I switched to skim. I never buy big containers of chocolate milk, but if the little single-serve ones are on a really good sale I might pick up a couple as a treat. That makes no sense, because it is cheaper in the half gallons, but I don't want it to become a habit! 

We also often have Coke Zero and diet Canada Dry ginger ale in the house, and sometimes the boys will drink that, but we still try and limit caffeine for both of them, especially Riley. I will drink milk with cookies, or graham crackers, but other than that it is mostly for cereal for the adults. Erick doesn't dislike it, but will usually choose water.

we LOVE milk at our house.  I usually buy 2%, but I have been drinking 1% lately.  We have milk every night with supper.

I do not drink milk, unless there are Oreos involved LOL

All Waylon will drink is milk, water and OJ. He drinks no tea, pop, very little kool-aid or capri sun.  Jeffrey will drink anything you put in front of him. He does like milk too.  I usually have whole or Vitamin D for them. The more calories I can stuff into Waylon, the better LOL

Not really a big milk drinker.  I do use whole milk in my coffee and if I do have a glass of milk it would be skim milk.
