Nursery Milk Scheme

The Nursery Milk Scheme is operated by the Nursery Milk Reimbursement Unit (NMRU) on behalf of the Department of Health. It entitles children under 5 years who attend approved day care facilities to receive 189ml (1/3 pint) of milk each day, free of charge.

The Nursery Milk Scheme funds milk for approximately 1.5 million children under 5 years old. This is a Government funded scheme, costing the Department of Health and the Scottish and Welsh Governments approximately £70m per year. The Secretary of State for Health has a statutory obligation to provide the Nursery Milk Scheme. The Nursery Milk Scheme is governed by The Welfare Food Regulations 1996.

All children at Moorwell Miracles will be offered their allocation of milk with their mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack.
