When I'm in John Lewis (and can afford it) I like to visit their restaurant and have a bite to eat and cup of tea cake in my tea I like to have full fat milk...yesterday when I asked for full fat I was told that they only have semi skimmed ...but have full fat milk in the children's lunch box meals AIBU to think that in this age of healthy eating for children and some adults that the full fat milk should be available for adults (their choice) and the healthier semi skimmed to be put in the children's lunch box meals instead of the less healthy FF milk??? not a major 'issue' in the grand scheme of things but just think it's 'odd' IYSWIM

I can't bear milk in tea, but even I think YANBU

YABU.
I love FF milk on cereal or in coffee but in tea? hmm

The fat molecules in FF milk assist the body in absorbing the calcium, according to a study done a few years ago. So it's much better for people who need calcium, eg kids and post-menopausal women.
It also tastes nicer IMHO.

I prefer skimmed milk in tea and am always a bit sad that I can't get it when I go to John Lewis.

sometimes healthy, size 20

Try semi skimmed and you might be healthy more often.....

FF better for children.

I was in JL today - it truly re-kindled my love ...

If there was a heaven, it would be John Lewis, but you could sleep on the beds ... <sigh>

Good old dairy fat is good for kids!

Oops. I see that many others have said this. And that you are mostly miffed about the absence of FF for adults. I like FF too, but I think other posters are right - it's because the majority of adults these days like SS.

They are weirdoes, salsmum. And very, very wrong. Especially when you put together SS and coffee. Why would anyone do that??

(And the poster who has suggested you have SS more often - she is rude and horrid. There is little worse than a charmless personality. It is a BO of the soul.)

JL restaurants are way too expensive

I generally have double cream in my coffee <cue LaGuardia having conniption fit>

The amount of fat in milk is absolutely tiny. You would have to drink gallons of it for it to make that much of a difference.

LaGuardia I really didn't need to be insulted THANK YOU! I have lost 3 members of my family this year (my Mother on 4th Nov) I am also a full time carer to my daughter who is severely disabled with Cerebral Palsy. I have gym membership and go when I can but have understandably felt quite down of late and only get 1 day a week when I can attend! I am however a strong person and will get through it even though my daughter is dreading Christmas this year because her Father will not be here (he passed in January)...I do not want pity but also I think it's very unfair that you choose to judge me on my size alone (or others for that matter) and to 'generalise' is cruel....I may be a size 20 because I'm on medication...there could be a number of reasons...I mentioned sometimes healthy because I do enjoy the odd naughty treat sometimes
..like going to JL for tea and a slice of cake...obviously you are a perfect person hmm who can sit on your high morale ground, look down and judge others..lets hope you never have a shit year such as the one I've just had!

Coffee is best with proper cream - sorry LaGuardia

Tea however, I find too delicate for full fat, so I tend to go semi skimmed. So on that basis YABU grin
