    I grew up on a dairy farm where we had real milk straight from the vatt with the cream on top. Yummo! So knowing that the milk in the cold section of supermarkets is so watered down, the supposedly full cream is watered down enough nevermind skim. We use the uht milk when camping and we stuck with it. Can definitely taste the difference between fridge section milk and uht. Uht tasting much creamier! We use the semi skim and full cream for the kids. And although a little of the nutrients are lost due to the heating process of the uht it isn't sufficient enough to warrant worrying about. Our kids certainly don't lack anything as they have plenty of yogurt and cheese in their diets as do Dh and I.

    Can I ask why you don't source raw milk now?

    My university health lecturer explained the milk thing in great detail (stating that whole milk is far better than skim, especially for weight loss purposes) but I can't recall her exact reasoning

    We eat full fat milk, cheese etc in this house. I hate skim milk. We also eat butter - I won't touch margarine with a ten foot pole. It is scary how it is made....reminds me of a science experiment

    Oh and coconut oil is AMAZING.

    We drank raw milk a few years ago before we moved out of the city when we moved back we sourced it again but they have changed how the do the orders and they only do it in 5L plastic jugs now I found the milk kept going off really quickly before the use to fill up glass bottles for you, devo now we buy organic Margaret river milk (I think that's what it's called? It's got a green label) or Harvey fresh as a last resort.

    We live amongst dairy farms but it is illegal for them to sell it. No health food stores around to buy the 'bath milk' either I normally get Barambah Organic. I can't stand milk though, blerghhh! Only for DH and kiddos.
