European Parliament approves new combined milk & fruit scheme for schools

The new scheme, approved by the European Parliament last month, will merge separate EU school milk and fruit schemes and boost their combined budget by €20 million to €250 million a year. Member states signing up for the scheme will have to promote more healthy eating habits, local food, organic farming and action on food waste. The UK Government will use the period up to August 2017 to consider the new requirements and consult with interested parties. Read the UK Government’s statement here
