milk, it does a body good.......


milk, it does a body good, originally uploaded by jwlphotography.

It's too bad the kids don't like drinking it anymore. When Kayla was drinking from a bottle, she could literally consume a gallon a week. In the mornings, she would drink 12 ounces of milk easily. Now, she barely drinks 2-3 ounces. We have to pack a sippy cup for her to bring to school every day. Now, Kristin.....it takes her almost an hour to drink her cup of milk, and it's only 6-7 ounces. What is it with kids and drinking milk?

  1. I've heard a lot of reports about people with Asian and African decent having issues digesting milk, losing an enzyme required to break it down in their intestines. I DO think lactose intolerance is highly over diagnosed in the US, but here's a little quirp about it. http://www.eastwestmagazine.com/content/view/86/40/

    Yeah, it's awful what happened with the whole melamine contamination in dairy products deal : / We try to buy all organic now, hoping that the foods they eat are not contaminated with any chemicals.

  5. I can't stand milk; so I understand your little girls' aversion. I tried to get my dairy in through yogurt and cheese. :)

  9. That's funny. Our 2 year old loves milk she asks for it first thing in the mornings and last thing in the evening's. And if we even mention the word "store" she starts say milk milk over and over again
