    Purely as I'm a non drinker as well.
    If I let DH he would probably try and drink more.
    6 kids only 5 kids at home. 3 of which are teenagers and 1 hubby who thinks that spooning the milo into the 1/2 full 3 L carton is perfectly reasonable.

    We go through 4L per week. Family of 2 adults and 1 baby, only DH and I drink milk. I'm picky with my milk and buy the non homogenised milk that's local so if we need more than that 4L we use long life milk otherwise it's too pricey!

    Default Milk

    I buy my milk raw and buy 10 litres a week. My DD is a milkaholic and I use it a lot in cooking (custards, yogurt etc). I also make butter from the fresh cream I scoop off the top.
    Yum! Going to start making my own cheeses now I've got my tmx.

    Ah well that makes more sense! Teenagers eat (and drink) you out of house and home.

    Omg my DH does the same thing except at the moment he just squirts a heap of chocolate topping in the bottle cos I am refusing to buy milo (if i but it DS1 and I fight every single morning because he wants to out it on his weetbix!)

    As an average, my family of 6 use 2-3 cups of milk a day (1 bottle for the toddler, up to 2 coffees for me ). So around 1 litre every 2 days.

    Unless I use it in cooking or I do smoothies - which isn't a regular thing.
