Fresh Milk Club Feedback

'Our school has been involved in the School Milk Scheme for several years. We have practically 100% participation. Milk is such a natural, delicious drink for children. It stays really cool too in the special NDC cooler-bags which were supplied free of charge. The children can't wait to get the attractively presented cartons every morning and, of course, it's such good value. I would encourage any school that is not involved to do so. We're certainly thrilled with the scheme'?

'Scoil na Croise Naofa, Cork has been participating in the School Milk Scheme for many years. The milk is delivered promptly to the school and the children really enjoy it. The National Dairy Council provided the school with a refrigerator to store the milk and keep it cool and fresh. This is an excellent scheme with huge benefits for the children'
