Welcome to the School Milk and Dairy Programme
Milk a natural source of many essential nutrients such as calcium, protein, iodine, vitamin B2 and vitamin B12.
The school milk programme is EU-subsidised and provides a carton of milk at a very low price to every child registered in participating schools - Montessori, National and Secondary schools alike. The programme is recognised as a valuable way of ensuring that Irish children consume one of their recommended portions of dairy each day. As the milk is delivered by the local dairy, participation also supports local jobs.
Only pupils at participating schools can receive School Milk, so we would encourage your school to register for the School Milk and Dairy Programme so that your pupils can benefit.
