'For every future, for every child'

Why is my child being offered milk and fruit or vegetables?


Children in Nursery and Reception Classes, who are under 5 years old, are eligible for a free small carton of milk every day.  Children further up the school will be required to pay for the milk should they choose to receive it.  Also, children in Key Stage One are given a piece of fresh fruit or vegetable each day, again free of charge.  This is a government initiative to encourage children to eat healthily and to develop a liking for fruit and vegetables as they grow up.  This is not available to Key Stage Two children.
