World School Milk Day

Dame Anne was delighted to be invited to Woodend Nursery to celebrate World School Milk Day and the benefits of drinking milk.

Dame Anne said “ I am supporting World School Milk Day and the school milk scheme as I am aware of the positive effect it has in encouraging children to drink milk throughout their childhood, ensuring they develop healthy bones. I remember drinking milk as a child and I still love it.”

World School Milk Day is organised by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and is celebrated in over 30 countries around the world.

The Department of Health is currently reviewing the Nursery Milk scheme and you can complete the public consultation before 23rd October here: http://consultations.dh.gov.uk/nurserymilk/nextsteps
