The SFVS provides a free piece of fruit to every 4 – 6 (Reception, Year 1 & 2) year old who attends a state primary School. This provides one of their ‘5 a day’ portions and helps to increase awareness of the importance of eating fruit and vegetables, encouraging healthy eating habits that can be carried into later life.

 

Cool Milk

Cool Milk helps schools across the UK achieve the “Milk and Diary” standard.

School milk at mid-morning break is an important part of a child’s diet.  Milk provides a number of health benefits and social opportunities that ensure children get the most out of their school day.

As part of the School Food Plan, all maintained primary, infant, junior and secondary schools are now legally required to make milk available for drinking during school hours.  Free school milk is available for under-fives. 

Please follow the link to access the Cool Milk website for more information and to register your child for free milk (under five year olds) or to receive milk in school (parental payment)
