Product Description

Good nutrition is important for people of all ages. During childhood, good nutrition

promotes normal growth and development. Children spend a significant amount of

time at school on a day-to-day basis. As a result, the school environment can have a

major impact on attitudes to food. Around the world, school milk programmes exist to

encourage the consumption of milk and milk products by children in order to make a

positive contribution to their nutritional status, to address issues of malnutrition and

to engender healthy eating habits. In 2013, the FAO and the IDF worked collaboratively

to conduct an extensive review of global school milk programmes. In the largest global

review to date, the FAO and the IDF looked at school milk programme implementation,

administration, promotion, nutritional importance, competitor promotion, packaging

and market value. This special bulletin provides the results of that review. The insights

gained from the review will be invaluable both to those who run school milk programmes

and to the industry that supplies the school milk.
