I buy the Dairy Farmers "New" milk.. It's their 2% fat milk. If the shop doesn't have it then I will buy full cream. I don't like Trim/Skim milk as it is basically like watery milk. I have to be careful with full fat milk though as it can be a trigger for my IBS, which is not enjoyable!
Full fat in our house. I'm the only one in the house who consumes milk. I'm not loyal to cow's milk though, I occasionally buy oat, almond or soy.
I have a dash of it in coffee and use a bit for cereal, that's it.
Cheese is my main source of dairy, full fat there too.
I know full fat is better for all the reasons listed here in the thread and from following a LCHF diet.
But.... I can not stand the taste of full cream milk, I gag and it is just gross.
So we have both in our house. Full fat for everyone else and skim for my coffee.
Full fat here. Drank light milk while pregnant as I went off the full.

Well I buy all our milk for the fortnight in long life and I get an assortment full fat, reduce fat and skim milk :-) I find I like different milk in different things baking and dessert skim, hot drinks reduced fat and cereal full cream :-)
Dd3 who has 2 bottles 150-200ml gets full fat :-) the other 2 girls just swap and change daily I'm not to fussed which one they prefer
Thank you for all the info everyone! I am now a full cream drinker lol. And after putting it in my calorie counter this morning I can see it's hardly any extra calories anyway
