    Weird question, but it is something to post about!

    Do you drink milk? I do! I drink a large glass each night before bed. I do this to prevent osteporosis in old age. I also have the odd mini babybel to assist with this.

    I do actually enjoy drinking milk: as does Jessica Alba’s character in “Dark Angel”. I know it’s fiction, but I don’t want thin, breaking bones as an old woman.

    Over to you.

    Ive always loved milk but as I passed 40 I noticed it caused me some digestive problems. Two of my children have lactose intolerance so I switched to lactose free and that solved it..

    I eat home made yogurt as well as porridge made with milk( in winter).

    Having worked with the elderly I am all too aware of the dangers of osteoporosis.. its something I would avoid if possible and if drinking milk helps Im  happy to drink a glass each day.

    Although I grew up eating cereal and milk for breakfast , I’m not so much of a milk drinker anymore.  I eat a couple of servings of plain, low-fat or fat-free Greek yogurt during the day.

    It’s funny when I remember sneaking downstairs at night when I was little and drinking milk from the bottle as I peered through a gap in the door to watch the TV program my mum and dad were watching 😀 .

    I seldom drink milk now but do have it with my cereal every morning. I also eats lots of cheese. Mosts nights for supper in fact. I have cut back a little as I was eating too much. I love cheese!

    I love cheese myself, SpinningJen! I am addicted to it: seriously.

    It is interesting to hear your comments about drinking milk and dairy products in general. Because – back in the day – a lot of women stopped consuming dairy products because they believed they’d put on weight. There must’ve been a rise in osteporosis years after this. Dairy products – scientists have discovered – do not cause weight gain, unless eaten/drank in excess. The fats in dairy can actually be good for the body, too. A little science.

    Anyhow, cold, fresh milk tastes delicious and is very refreshing.
