It was disgusting, it used to be left in the hall in the sunlight and by the time you had to drink it it was rancid. I鈥檓 in my sixties now and still can鈥檛 drink milk. Yuk.
 
The good old days of free milk at school before Thatcher stopped it 馃
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Truly the reason I can鈥檛 stand warm milk because they didn鈥檛 refrigerate it Can only drink it ice cold 馃槀
 
 
It was great until Conservative minister Margaret Thatcher stopped kids having it #ToriesOut

Real milk delivered daily by the Milk Man!
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Our milk came in a weird triangle and you had to poke a straw into it, just like a Caprisun. They were stored in orange hexagonal plastic boxes鈥 usually for hours in a lovely hot corridor or nannies office馃槻馃く馃あ馃あ馃あ馃あ馃ぎ pic.twitter.com/3V8ySzza6z
 
I have a vivid memory of my first milk bottle at school. Home was a farm, and up till then milk came from cows (or strictly from a churn), tasting rich, herby and creamy to thin and bland depending on season and field. It was nice. Bottled milk was horrible
 
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Damn Shame that it no longer exists! How many children today would benefit from a nourishing drink of milk whilst at school? Bring it back馃憤
 
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Who can forget, revolting warm milk left by the radiator. Totally traumatised. Only started drinking ice cold milk when I was expecting many years later.
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Yes, with holes in the top where birds had been pecking!
 
In reply to @4bruce7
White kids in a classroom. That was years ago.
 
In reply to @4bruce7
I do. I too was the milk monitor, but our bottles had cardboard tops. I entered the total number of boys in our class so some of us (me !) drank the spares.
 
The greatest school lunch of all time...we ran onto the field like All Blacks at breaktime...
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Being Milk Monitor was such an honour!!!
 
馃ぎ, even in winter time it sat beside the radiator, cream a solid limp pushing through the cap, horrid.
 
In reply to @4bruce7
And we still drank it even when it was warm from sitting in the sun all morning & the sparrows had pecked through the foil tops.
 
Hey, who remembers milk? Am I right? Anyone ever remember drinking milk?
 
In reply to @4bruce7
I do. Life wasn't perfect back then but it was a nice thing that we were given something to aid healthy growth and a stark contrast to today.
 
In reply to @4bruce7
I could drink the whole bottle in one breath! Or at least I remember trying my damnedest to!
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Delicious on a cold day 鈥isgusting in the summer
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Hated it. Always remember it being warm after being left in the sun in the playground鈥 馃あ Doesn鈥檛 excuse Thatcher snatching it from kids though!
 
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Loved it...stuff probably kept me alive at times
 
I remember it was always warm 馃あ
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Always with a silver top & blue straw, frozen top in winter, yucky taste in summer 馃槈 @NorthowramPS
 
Yes, milk in a bottle at break time. With a silver top on it. Memories
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Particularly on hot summer days when the milk crates had been left outside to warm up.
 
In reply to @4bruce7
I remember bottles then cartons with blue straws. Imagine that now? 馃

I loved my little bottle of milk.
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Yep. I remember 1st day of P1, having my milk and wanted another. 5 were left in the crate and I took one. Obv I didn't understand that wasn't cool. Teacher slapped me for it, told my mum that night and holy fuck, things kicked off. Ended up 2 years in P2, no P1. Over milk.馃槀

Warm milk on a hot day. And stuff all those kids with lactose intolerance they were forced to have it too by the govt.
Bit like vaccines today.
 
In reply to @4bruce7
My Dad said he loved being Milk monitor, leaving the class 5 minutes before the class ended, although he wasn't allowed tobe milk monitor for long. :-)
 
In reply to @4bruce7
In the days when there was an inch of cream at the top of the bottle, but I do remember it being warm. The milk we had delivered to our house was loved by the local blue tits until my mum bought special little bottle top covers 馃槒
 
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Even with cardboard bottle tops!
 
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Ah yes! Milk Monitor was a punishment, fetching the crate inside and handing out the milk. Frequently followed by the cane or slipper!
 
In reply to @4bruce7
Yes. 1/3 of a pint IIRC.
 
Until Thatcher the Milk Snatcher.
The wee bottles of milk where the main reason I wanted to go to school!
