Milk is Cool at School

Since 1934 subsidised school milk has been available in primary schools in the UK, and it remains a staple part of the school day for millions of children.

Milk is cool at schoolSchool milk is a hassle free way of guaranteeing your child gets a healthy drink delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom everyday.

It is free of charge for children under 5 at a registered day care provider or primary school and subsidised for children aged 5-11 in primary education.

Many schools get involved with additional aspects of the school milk scheme, including discussing the origins and processing of milk; participating in World School Milk Day; encouraging children to become milk monitors; designing a Christmas card for the school milk industry and introducing environmental programmes to get the children thinking about waste and recycling.

Milk is not just for children, it’s great for us too.

Add it to a wholesome soup, for extra flavour and added calcium, such as Curried Soup from the 2011 Dairy Diary.
