Milk is a natural source of calcium required for strong bones and teeth and together with fruit, can provide a healthy mid-morning snack for young children whilst at school. Taken on a daily basis, this helps to educate them away from the less healthy carbonated drinks and sugary snacks that are so readily available elsewhere.

Consumption of milk and dairy products is associated with numerous health benefits.
