Cows milk for small children
« on: August 08, 2010, 10:38:30 AM »
When I was at school... I left at age 18 in 1970 - they still gave us a free 1/3 pint of milk a day. We mostly ignored it. The majority of it went off and was thrown away.

I had no idea they were still giving cows milk to all children up to age 7 from age 3 (nursery)
Couple of days ago they said they were stopping this to save the money. 40m. plus.
Today the PM said no they were going to keep it.

Why on earth are we giving this to small children? SO bad for them.

I feel quite depressed about this. A 'health spokesperson' on the radio said today the children need it for healthy bones. :(

Let's just hope they don't replace full fat cow milk with zero-fat soy milk...

The trouble is the cows all get given stuff to increase their yield. Then they get sick and are fed a diet of antibiotics. This is in the milk. :(

I have full fat organic milk in my house and we also eat cheese.  I'm not 100% paelo though... follow the guildelines at marksdailyapple... 

Some people just can't handle dairy though... we're not one of them.
