Putting milk on the menu for pupils

Promotion encourages children to choose nutritious drink

Primary schools

Primary pupils are being encouraged to have milk with their school meals, as a nutritious drink option.

We are running a promotion inviting pupils to drink a carton of milk every day for 15 days to be entered into a prize draw.

One pupil in each participating school can win a stunt scooter and helmet.

To launch the promotion, which is being run in partnership with milk supplier Muller, Milk and Ingredients, Bella the cow visited St Augustine's Primary School in Coatbridge.

Bella is a life-size working model with udders and a full repertoire of cow noises used to teach children how cows are milked. She gives feedback to the pupils who try their hand at milking!

"Primary school children require calcium for healthy bones, and milk is an excellent natural source," explains Anne Hanlon, Business Manager with the school meals team.

"So we want to demonstrate to pupils how tasty white milk is and encourage them to drink it regularly along with their school meal."

Pupils will be issued with a loyalty card which will be stamped each time they choose milk. The promotion will run from 18 February to 18 March.
