Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We used to get milk or apples during the morning break, don't know if they still do it and it was free.

BBC NEWS | Wales | Row over school breakfast scheme
Less than 10% of primary schools in Wales are offering their pupils a free breakfast, a year after the scheme was introduced by the assembly government.

Figures show 148 out of a possible 1,588 primaries will offer their pupils a free breakfast by the end of the autumn term

Haven't found more recent information although an evaluation of this scheme is being done.

I do wish that schools wouldn't make children drink milk though.

But subsidised milk is such a great way to use all those CAP-funded cows...

Also, it provides an opportunity for branding and marketing of milk producers in a school environment that's so desperately underprovided in that department, compared to the rest of society.
