Nowadays, there are many options for milk, especially when it comes to plant-based options, but one lawmaker wants to regulate what we actually label as milk.

An Oklahoma lawmaker's bill would only allow "milk" from a "hooved mammal" to be called milk, according to officials.

That means those who use almond milk, soy milk or cocount milk could see a different name on the package.

The bill hasn't gone to a vote yet.
