My favorite dairy product is Cheese!!
My kids are milk fiends. Particularly Jasper, who gave up nursing cold turkey at 17 months so he could drink more whole milk. Seriously, the kid is like a milk lush. For a long time, I didn't think he actually consumed solid foods; he just subsisted on milk. His pediatrician said it wasn't causing him any problems, so I gave up trying to wean him off the white stuff. I didn't grow up drinking much milk, myself. I'm not sure if it's my Asian heritage or because I just didn't like the taste, but milk was pretty much something I used to moisten my cereal in the morning. In retrospect, it might be because the only kind we ever had in the house was skim milk. And the dreaded powdered milk… ick.
Anyway, during both of my pregnancies, I started becoming obsessed with organic milk and yogurt. I couldn't get enough. My favorite was this brand with a red label and a black and white cow jumping over the Earth: Horizon Organic. I'm back to normal levels of milk and yogurt consumption these days but my kids keep a run on the Horizon Organic milk. They are especially fond of the shelf-stable (no refrigeration needed, perfect for lunchboxes) lowfat chocolate organic milk boxes. Those things were a lifesaver on our cross-country road trip last summer!
A nice addition to their product roster is Horizon Organic Milk plus DHA Omega-3, available in whole, reduced fat and fat-free varieties as well as in the lowfat chocolate milk. DHA Omega-3 is a fatty acid that is widely thought to be beneficial for proper brain and eye function for infants and children, healthy heart function for both children and adults and brain function for adults. Sounds good to me.
