Participation of Dacian Cioloș, in a fruit and milk distribution in a school in Watermael-Boitsfort
On 30 January 2014, the European Commission published a proposal bringing together the School Fruit Scheme and the School Milk Scheme under a joint framework. The aim of the proposal is to address poor nutrition more effectively, to reinforce the educational elements of the programmes and to contribute to the fight against obesity. With the slogan "Eat well - feel good", this enhanced scheme from farm to school will put greater focus on educational measures to improve children's awareness of healthy eating habits, the range of farm produce available, as well as sustainability, environmental and food waste issues.
On this occasion, Dacian Cioloş, Member of the EC in charge of Agriculture and Rural Development, visited a primary school in the Brussels-Capital Region. As the children were making fruit salad, he talked with them about their favourite fruits and the way they are produced. SHOTLISTLINKLINKLINK
