Alliance meets with Scott Mann MP


On Tuesday 9th January, the Alliance met with Scott Mann, MP for North Cornwall and the new Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Dairy. At the meeting, the Alliance informed Mr Mann of the importance of school and nursery milk and the need for a domestic replacement to the EU School Milk Scheme after Brexit. We also discussed the benefits of school milk on children’s levels of obesity and tooth decay, as well as its positive impact on children’s concentration in the classroom. Mr Mann informed the Alliance of the work the Dairy APPG had planned for the coming year, and they discussed how the Alliance could get involved.
The School and Nursery Milk Alliance aims to ensure that children receive all the benefits that drinking milk in a school or early years setting provides, including: essential nutrients for a growing child, opportunities to develop social skills and encouraging lifelong healthy living habits.
