Assessment of the EU School Fruit and Vegetables and School Milk Schemes

In 2015, the Commission undertook an assessment of the School Fruit and Vegetables Scheme and the School Milk Scheme that operate under the remit of the CAP.

This assessment exercise is set to verify:

  • whether EU action in this area can demonstrate clear EU added value in line with the Treaty requirements on subsidiarity;
  • whether the content and the form of EU action are proportionate and do not exceed what is necessary to achieve the objectives pursued, and
  • whether EU action is efficient, effective, relevant and coherent, pursuing its objectives with the least burdens and costs to citizens, businesses and administrations in line with the Commission's Better Regulation policy.
