NO MILK TODAY, thanks.

Irish people are cutting down on the amount of milk they put on their cereal and in hot drinks, according to new figures from the Central Statistics Office.

However figures still remain pretty healthy and calcium-filled: Irish people are still buying just over 9 litres EACH every month.

Figures show the amount of milk sold for human consumption has dropped for the third year in a row, falling by 2 per cent alone between March 2012 and March 2013.

Milk sales dropped from 43 million litres to 42 million litres in the space of 12 months.

Whole milk made up almost two-thirds of milk sales, account for 26 million litres in March. Skimmed and semi-skimmed milk made up just over 16 million litres.
