World School Milk Day 2013

World School Milk Day is organised by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, and this year will be celebrating its 14th annual event.

Since 2000, when the first World School Milk Day was held, it has been recognised and honoured each year, by 30 different countries all over the world on the last Wednesday in September. It continues to successfully promote the importance of drinking milk at school to children in a fun, memorable and educational way.

This year in the UK, MPs are showing their support for school milk by visiting local primary schools and nurseries between 16th September and 11th October. During these visits, they will be acting as a milk monitor, taking a hands-on approach in handing out milk to the children, and talking about the benefits of milk.
