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.

Juice and other drinks for kids
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.

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.

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.
