They only made us eat/drink stuff at the daycare I went to during summers of elementary school. We had to drink all our milk and eat everything on our plates at lunch, or we couldn't play outside. I remember white bread covered in margarine and fish sticks and green peas and beets.

I still cannot eat canned beets.

Kosher flicks the weasel, never drank milk with meals (and the only milk we drank really was chocolate or coffee milk other times). When I went to college I saw people drinking milk with hamburgers and stuff and thought it was the grossest thing ever.

All this milk talk is grossing me out, and I loved milk before I was vegan. Bleah.

It's definitely grossing me out! I still can't drink non-dairy milk on anything, dry cereal forever!

I was required to drink dairy milk too. I found out many years later that my parents actually knew since I was a baby that I was lactose intolerant. That was not a conversation that went positively for anyone, yeah.

i am going to try and put all my zine recipes together for a kindle version. i am already anticipating the 'processed police' and the negative reviews.

also i am tired of a person reading one article from a shifty source and all of the sudden they become health experts.

This thread is also making me glad that I was never forced to drink large glasses of milk as a kid. I did drink a lot of milk , but it was because I wanted to and it wasn't straight up plain milk. We were Strawberry Quick fans. That tin with the pink powder inside and the bunny on the cover was delicious. My dad taught me to put peanut m&ms in my milk so it would get all chocolaty and peanutty. Ovaltine was also a regular staple and sometimes Hershey's syrup. I really wish one of the non dairy milk companies would make a strawberry flavored milk.

Alpro make strawberry soya milk. Here in the UK I've only seen it in three-packs of 25o ml cartons and I don't know what the availability is like elsewhere.

I'm not sure; I haven't seen that and Alpro website is refusing to load.

My pet peeve is that I keep thinking I've found banana flavoured milk for sale (i.e. a yellow carton) and it always turns out to be vanilla.

they definitely had milk in elementary school. i remember the little square cartons. chocolate or plain. getting chocolate was like a big deal.

pretty sure i had to drink it at home too. not sure it was ever forced on me but it was definitely something that was given to me.

the dairy industry did a really good job infiltrating schools and making teachers and parents think you need milk to survive.

Oh good, I'm not the only one. I've had nightmares about Alpo. Really.

Banana milk makes me think of the banana flavoured medicine I had to take when I was really little for my chronic ear infections - no no no. I can't handle banana or grape flavoured things because of that medicine.

As for dairy milk, it was so weird to me when I started dating my husband and his family didn't have milk at dinner, I figured it was just a universal thing! Milk with dinner, dessert, cookies or peanut butter sandwiches. Almost the envy time I have straight almond milk now us if I have PB or a cookie.

I have just the opposite. Someone posted recently about feeding their dog Alpo, and I thought "Why are you giving your dog soy milk?"

When I was in high school I had to get a doctor's note saying I was lactose intolerant so I could get juice instead of milk on the rare occasions I got food from the cafeteria. The funny thing is I just went to the health clinic in our school (we had a county health clinic in the school that was available to all students at no cost), told them I was lactose intolerant and that I needed a note that said that, so they just wrote me one...it's not like they test for that!

if you did not drink your milk at lunch you put the little carton on a tray...it was always full unless it was chocolate milk day.

In Germany, too. But we don't get speculoos pudding like you guys do, boo.

My current peeve is the phrase "I could never give up CHEESE!" Which was the veritable chorus-like response around the table at a business lunch today when I said I was vegan. (It came up in the course of ordering- I never make a big thing out of it or even mention it at all). Followed by one person who was vegetarian saying how her daughter got them all to be vegetarian but then the daughter tried to be vegan and got a severe vitamin D deficiency that the doctors thought was a brain tumor, so now they all eat vegan three nights a week and vegetarian four nights. And she also said being vegan was hard because cooking vegan is difficult. Weird. And then she contemplated ordering fish but settled on a veggie burger.

We were required to take a juice or a milk every day, but the juice was just as vile as the milk. They had these buckets that you poured your excess into, so it was just these nasty buckets of warming milk and juice... I cannot handle the smell of warm milk for this exact reason.

My mom has lots of stories of working in an elementary school cafeteria. All I say is that even though I qualified for free lunch, she made me a lunch every day and told me not to eat the food in the cafeteria.

I feel like the odd one out. My parents never had to force me to drink milk; they actually had to restrict me from drinking it all. I loved everything dairy in my youth, even my grandparents' sweet acidophilus. My mom is a lunch lady, and she used to bring home leftover food at the end of the semester. My siblings and I always fought over the chocolate milk. I was both sad and happy the year I went veg and had started drinking soy milk - I tried to drink a carton of chocolate milk and it was rank. Now of course I love everything non-dairy.

On the topic of forcing children to eat stuff - my dad kept trying to make my brother eat corn, which he hated. He threw it up once and decided he was allergic (though he can eat corn in all its other forms). He hasn't eaten corn in kernel form, on or off the cob, in something like 30 years.

I saw an infographic titled which type of milk is the best, Cow, Sheep, or goat. Sheep? Really? They are now milking sheep? (Or have they always done that and I've just never known?) Are they adding more animals to exploit for their milk? The thought of sheep milk makes me want to vomit for all the wrong reasons.
