I have recently joined the Cool Milk scheme which entitles all children under the age of five to 189ml of free milk a day. This is delivered to us fresh 3 days a week.
Providing milk is a great way to support the health and development children in my care. It is one of the few drinks recommended in the latest School Food Trust guidelines on food and drink in early years, so I am pleased to be able to offer this in my setting.
Milk is an ideal mid-morning drink and is the perfect accompaniment to fruit. It is excellent for hydration, supporting brain function including concentration, memory and creativity.
The children have been enjoying their milk each snack time. We were even lucky enough to receive some free Cool Milk cups!
