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.
