The European School Milk Programme

The European Union’s School Milk Programme isn’t just about milk. It’s about milk, yogurt, cheese, buttermilk and other delicious milk products that are important to good nutrition and a balanced diet. It’s also about you and your well-being: eating well, staying fit and being healthy.

Packed with calcium, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients your body needs, milk and milk products give you power in your everyday life. Explore our website and learn more about the nutritional “power” of dairy and test your knowledge about milk and milk products.

Do you have a milk fountain at your school? Can you get yogurt or milk during school lunch? Did you know that in most places the European School Milk Programme helps make it possible for your school to offer you these and other milk products? Fruit and vegetables are also important to stay healthy, so the EU would like to provide free fruit and vegetables to you at your school through the proposed European School Fruit Scheme.
