Milk was a liquid produced by the mammary glands of female mammals, which provided the primary source of nutrition for their newborns, before they were able to digest other types of food. (TNG episode: "A Matter of Honor")

In many cultures, non-sentient mammals were domesticated and their milk used as food, either as a beverage by itself, or in products such as cheese and ice cream (DS9 episode: "Far Beyond the Stars", TOS episode: "The Conscience of the King"). On Earth, cows were the most common milk animals, along with goats. (TNG episode: "Up the Long Ladder")

In order to appear inconspicuous among Human Starfleet cadets, Data learned to order a chicken sandwich, apple, and glass of milk when eating in company. Tasha Yar referred to the meal as "misfit camouflage". (TNG novel: Survivors)
