    I've been drinking reduced fat milk for many years now but ever since DS started solids and started needing full cream milk for his cereals etc I was like hey....if it's better for him then it can't hurt me! It's tastier, natural and then I only need to buy one kind of milk tehehe

    ETA: I only use good ol' fatty, natural butter now too. Wouldn't dare spread logical or flora on DS's sammies. It's amazing how having a child changes your own habbits (for the better) as well....like skin care and everything!

    I only drink skim milk, I hate the taste of full fat milk, and I'm from a prime dairy farming community...go figure.

    I was told by my MCHN that they're now recommending skim from ages 2 and up and the younger years is when a lot of damage to the arteries fom fats occurs. Have they changed their minds on that already?

    Clearly the current reccomedations of eating a low fat diet are floored. We are all getting fatter and obesity is on the rise......

    It's not working.

    Yep. IMO, full fat dairy is the least of our worries regarding obesity.

    I thought childhood obesity was getting better?

    How would the obesity stats would read if the recommendation was to eat full fat dairy - could be worse.

    This is all too confusing. Glad I'm not big on dairy. Apart from chocolate. That ain't low fat, hey must be good for me

    Yes me too. It's not a major part of my diet so the sugar or fat content really isn't an issue for me. Might as well try it.

    I heard this recently too. My mil goes mental if I give ds low fat milk which I only did once when she was out of full cream. If ds consumed a hell of a lot of milk or was overweight I would probably give him low fat milk but he doesn't and he isn't so I won't.

    i think the more we change food from it's natural state, the worse it is.
    i don't eat anything low fat or highly processed as in a 'fake' food. eg. margarine.
    i eat butter, full fat milk and full fat yoghurt.
    oh, and i've also lived with an eating disorder (anorexia) most of my life. i feel healthier eating a smaller amount of full fat products than a bucket load of chemicals.
