Government releases school milk subsidy advice #teamdairy

The subsidy scheme has been set up to develop a lifelong habit of consuming milk and milk products for children.

 

In England, Scotland and Wales the school milk subsidy scheme is administered by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA).

 

The EU aid rate is €186.945 per kilolitre for milk and yoghurt which is then topped up by the UK. This top up rate is £39.855 per kilolitre.

 

Under the scheme, pupils can receive up to 250ml of subsidised milk per day. The government also advises on the price of subsidised milk to pupils. Pupils can be charged no more than the 7p above the purchase price after the subsidy has been taken into account.

 

For children in Key Stage 1 education in Wales, the full cost of milk is reimbursed, plus a contribution to administration costs.

 

For children under 5 who are regularly attending a nursery or other pre-school establishment, the full cost of up to 189ml of milk per pupil can be claimed under the Nursery Milk Scheme.

 

The reintroduction of school milk is targeted at improving children’s health as well as providing a boost to milk producers.
