My (incompetent) ex-family doctor insisted that I would get calcium deficiency if I didn't drink milk every day. And also that chocolate/cocoa were very bad for calcium absorption. The result?
My parents made me drink plain milk every single day for years. The situation changed when I was big enough to be left home alone and they started to just leave milk glasses around for me.
And then our sink started a very nourishing diet of a milk in the morning. Hope it appreciated the calcium intake.
ewww! I sympathize!
my parents made me drink a glass of plain milk with every meal as a kid... I hated it so much that I'd put off drinking until the end of the meal when I'd chug the glass of milk as quickly as possible- this ended up making me more talented at drinking games in college.... but the idea of drinking a glass of plain milk has remained horrible- I associate it with being luke warm and forced

What's with everyone's parents making them drink milk??
My mom hated drinking milk, so she never made us drink it at home. I love eating cereal with milk and I drink up the left over milk at the bottom of the bowl. But...I can't say I crave drinking a plain glass of milk. I had a roommate in college who would leave a smidge of milk at the bottom of his glasses around the apartment and he'd never do dishes...so the milk would rot in there. That was pretty nasty.
Oh, we used powdered milk at home too. Honduras isn't known for quality milk. The milk there is quite gross. I guess it was whole-ish milk rather than 2% or...ugh...skim. Skim is white water with a drop of flavor. Blegh! Idk how people drink that stuff.
I recently tried some unpasteurized whole milk and it was pretty good. It reminded me of the powdered milk we had.
blah, blah, blah. I'll stop the milk ramble.
