We drink a lot of milk in our house, two of my children would drink milk all day long if they could, while my middle daughter merely tolerates it and has only the tiniest trickle on her cereal in the morning, which is very frustrating as I worry about her calcium intake, especially as she is very active and does a lot of sport.
When the kids have a bad day and come home from school upset or worried about something, my sure fire way to cheer them up is with an ice cold glass of milk and homemade chocolate brownie, or if it’s cold we’ll sometimes have a hot frothy milk, maybe with a sprinkle of chocolate powder, then we sit down together, chatting about our day, nine times out of ten the comfort of the milk and time together makes them forget whatever had happened to make them sad.
There’s just something so comforting about milk isn’t there? If I have a sore tummy or can’t sleep for some reason milk with a little honey always helps me feel better. I like Cravendale especially as it just tastes so pure, and seems to last a lot longer than other brands, which I’m told is because the filtering process removes more bacteria.
