    Milk is not "healthy". I will never agree to that proposition. And my kids don't like it. I don't offer it (ever) and they actually don't like the taste of it. We use almond and coconut milk blends. They love that.

    Great summary! I totally agree. We do use a LOT of milk in our house though. My kids eat porridge almost every morning and I make it with milk. But I myself am lactose intolerant so I don't drink milk, only soy milk (BOnsoy! I'm a soy snob). I do eat a lot of ice cream at the moment (pregnancy cravings!) but I always feel sick afterwards lol

    Kids don't drink a lot of milk, but they consume a lot of dairy products (in porridge, smoothie every couple of days, and I think they drink a bit at childcare too). I would say 99% of their beverage intake is water.

    Just curious as to what your qualifications are? I see you offering advice about food (drinks in this instance) & was interested in what your background was?

    Hope that doesn't sound nasty, I'm genuinely interested!

    I'll reply (knowing you didn't ask me). None of these comments about milk are particularly controversial. They are well known observations most nutritionists and dietitians advocate.

    Most food we eat or drink is inflammatory; what is important to recognise is how our individual bodies react to those foods. A lot of people I know won't eat gluten even though they aren't gluten intolerant. I find that a bit odd but each to their own.

    With dairy a lot of people are intolerant to it but don't realise this as the intolerance isn't making them "sick".

    I recently did an elimination diet out of curiosity to see how eliminating different foods from my diet would make me feel. It was quite fascinating and challenged me to rethink how I viewed many staples in my diet.

    @Sonja thanks, I wasn't necessarily asking in regards to this topic, just in general.

    We rarely have juice in the house - on really when there are birthday parties, etc. My kids might try some at a party, but usually prefer water because it's what they're used to drinking.

    We are also mostly dairy free due to me + 3 kids having a dairy intolerance. All kids had CMPI from birth, so I dont have any traces of dairy when breastfeeding & the kids dont have any dairy for the first 3-4 years of their life. My kids tend to start slowly tolerating cheese & baked dairy in small amounts at around age 3-4, but still dont have milk, yogurt, or cream, and willj never be big consumers of dairy. It makes us too unwell & causes asthma attacks.

    No qualifications! 1 nutritionist and 1 naturopath in the family, so we discuss nutrition, food a lot - I'm a big foodie , BLW advocate and have a huge interest in nutrition , especially for kids so do a lot of reading/research plus as a non meat eater for nearly 30 years I have researched a lot on how much healthier our bodies can be with a lot less animal products in them

    My BIL was lactose intolerant as a child and supposedly 'outgrew' it. DH and him are from a family that think nothing of drinking 1L of milk with dinner and chasing it down with 1kg of yoghurt.

    Recently BIL got given goat milk in a food hamper - apparently he felt better than he has for years and has now cut back on dairy and buys goat or lactose free milk.

    Both my lids are CMPI and I used to be intolerant to it as a child too.

    DD is 4.5 and can now toe rate it but doesn't want it or cheese, or real butter (but has no problems with chocolate or ice cream of course!!!)

    I cut out dairy from my diet when DS was breastfeeding as he didn't take a bottle so I had no option. I definitely weighed less because of it.

    Since weaning him I went back to cheese and ice cream and chocolate and piled on the weight!

    So now I'm cutting it out as much as I can. I've always had soy in my coffee even before BF DS, so I continue that and try to do cheese and cream and butter in moderation. I do still have Greek yoghurt as a substitute for cream in recipes. It's definitely not as good as people believe, but is very hard to eliminate if you don't have a reason like I did with DS.

    Thanks, just wondered as you seem to be called upon for advise relating to the topic a lot.
