    We go through at least 5ltrs a day, so 35lts a week. Sometimes more if I am baking heaps or we have the kids friends over.We are a family of 6 with 1 teenager and 1 adult child who love milk and a dh who loves it even more than the kids. And yes our fridge is massive.I always feel like an alien family when I see how little other families go through!

    I buy two 3l a week and that usually keeps us going. Two adults and a three year old - the newbie doesn't have any! We use it for tea/coffee, a drink before bed for mr 3 and cereal, as well as baking sometimes.

    I've never really thought about it before, but we do go through a lot.
    Around 2 litres a day. Wow, that's 14 litres a week!
    There's DH who is a big milk drinker, he has a big bowl of cereal (or 2)a day, plus a couple of teas /coffees. He also drinks a lot of Milo/choc milk in his big "man size" 750 ml milkshake cups. I have it in my tea/coffee (approx 2 a day) and sometimes over my cereal a couple of times a week. I consume the least out of all of us though. Then there's my teen DS who has it with his cereal daily and Milo. DD drinks around 4-600 ml a day and also has it on her cereal. I use milk in my day to day cooking alot, too, like scrambled eggs.

    Thank you. Is the nutritional value the same too?

    I'm not a fan of powdered milk to drink but I use it to make all my custards and in any baking that calls for milk. I also use it in porridge - I soak my oats overnight in water then after I cook them the next morning I add a couple of scoops of powdered milk:

    Is there any taste difference in a finished product? I know I can smell powdered milk, does that go away?

    The kids and DH on the other hand...

    We go through a minimum of 24 L a week but most weeks more like 30 and we still run out every day . If the kids had it their way it would be 42 L a week.
    If you don't mind me asking how many kids have you got?
    I am having trouble fathoming 30L per week!
    Purely as I'm a non drinker as well.
    If I let DH he would probably try and drink more.

    3 litres a week - 1L for me (lactose free) and 2L between DD and DH. I also use about 700ml of almond milk for porridge
