The School Milk Scheme is EU-subsidised and provides a carton of milk at a very low price to every child registered in participating schools - Montessori, National and Secondary schools alike. The programme is valuable for Irish children, helping to count towads one of their recommended servings from the 'milk, yogurt and cheese' food group and, as the milk is delivered by local dairies, participation also supports local jobs.
Only pupils at participating schools can receive School Milk, so we would encourage your school to register so that your pupils can benefit. In association with your local dairy, schools that require refrigeration to facilitate participation, will be supplied with a free fridge upon registration.
To register your school for the School Milk Scheme or for further information, contact the National Dairy Council on 01-290 2451 or email us at info[at]ndc[dot]ie
