We drink a variety of milk at our house. Jed used to drink skim milk (yuck), but now drinks soy milk. Me and the older kids were drinking 1% milk. And in January, Baby X transitioned to whole milk.
To sort of ease things on the milk buying front, I started buying 1/2 gallons of 1% for me and had Princess Sparkley and Buddy move back to drinking whole milk with Baby X. I figured they are skinny enough that whole milk would be good for them.
But I wasn't drinking milk fast enough on my own to beat the expiration dates, so it became whichever milk there was more of in the fridge is what Princess Sparkley and Buddy got to drink. So if there was more whole milk, they drank it. If there was more 1%, they'd have 1%.
For the past week they've been drinking whole milk until last night at dinner. I poured Princess Sparkley some 1%. Her reaction was that it was gross and tasted like water. She tends to complain a lot about what her milk tastes like, no matter what, so I was sort of blowing it off. But then I had to laugh because compared to the whole milk she had been drinking all week, 1% probably did taste like water. That's how I feel about skim milk compared to 1%.
What kind of milk do you drink?
