I'd already left school before that nasty lady appeared on our horizons. My milk-drinking days were long over.

I don't know how much the loss of that milk affected the younger ones, it coincided with the gradually increase of so many unhealthy habits.

(I managed to avoid the doubtful honour of being a milk monitor.)

So thinks we just stick to milk.  :)

Were you ever a milk monitor Mag.  ;)

Yes, and it carried perks. You could finish off all the unclaimed bottles left in the crate.

Not keen on milk, at home I have a small amount of Semi skimmed in Coffee and on cereal. I remember the small milk bottles at School, probably a third of a pint. I was thankful when the Blessed Margaret stopped us poor children from having to waste it by pouring it away. :bravo:

I remember at senior school the milk was left in crates in the playground. In the winter you could have as many bottles as you liked but had to be quick in the Summer.
I now have skimmed milk but also Alpro,especially the Dark chocolate one.

I'm sure ours was never left outside. But I wonder who distributed the crates to the classrooms? Too heavy for a milk monitor or even two. I think at senior school we took a bottle each on our way out, and put the empties back as we came back in after break. I certainly wouldn't have wanted more than one bottle. I can't remember anyone having more than one, or anyone pouring it out.

Ah well, boys are a bit more competitive, we used to have drinking contests to see who could down the most number during break. It gave a good excuse to hold your hand up during a boring class and ask to be excused for toilet.

I don't know why I remember this but I still have a picture in my head of our teacher in primary school, using a pair of scissors, partly opened, and going all around the crate of milk bottles, cutting a gouge in each one to let the straw through, then the straws were pushed in and we all helped ourselves..I loved it when there were bottles over, as some children never liked milk. ( couldn't understand that!)

Our crates were carried inside by Mr Barber, the school handyman, and we always drank the milk inside at break time. Ah, happy days..I loved the orange juice too, but not the cod liver oil we were given.

Milk. I love the stuff. But only the proper stuff.

Drinking through straws? Cissy stuff. Never happened at my boys' school.

Yes, of course there must have been a handyman who carried crates round, I can't remember seeing it done but it would have been during lessons. Heavy job, 16 classes at junior school. I can't remember anyone making holes in the bottle tops for us. I do remember the flavoured straws some children brought from home to make the milk taste of chocolate or strawberry. My mother of course would not buy those.

There were a few children who couldn't drink milk or eat custard etc. They had to have a note from the doctor (and teachers would know the doctors, you couldn't fake that). You weren't allowed just to "not like" things!

We had cod liver oil and malt, and orange stuff, at home. I don't know what was in the orange stuff we were given in a spoon. But that was only when we were very small. We drank squash, not juice, very diluted.

Are you milk intolerant?   It seems that you can have a little milk.   Can you have milk in cakes or chocolate?   My young granddaughter is milk intolerant.   It is hoped that she will improve as she gets older.

Cats often are milk intolerant.  ;)
