|Why provide school milk?|
Milk is an important part of a child's diet. It is one of the few drinks allowed in school under the latest government's food-based and nutrient-based standards and provides a number of health benefits and social opportunities to ensure children get the most out of the school day.
School milk is also an ideal accompaniment to your school's free fruit scheme - download our factsheet to find out more.
