The Department for Education have launched the new school food standards
To ensure that children increase their calcium intake, the revised standards state that
“Lower fat milk must be available for drinking at least once a day during school hours”- this does not include breakfast or after school clubs.
The best and most beneficial time for all children to drink milk is at mid-morning break. As well as the nutritional benefits, mid-morning milk keeps children hydrated between breakfast and lunch, helping them concentrate and learn.
