Raise a glass of the white stuff for World School Milk Day

Jersey Dairy is delighted to be participating once again in World School Milk Day, which takes place this year on Wednesday 30th September. This is an annual event promoted by the FAO (Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations).

A healthy and nutritious diet is widely recognised as a vital ingredient in successful learning. Jersey milk is natural, nutritious and delicious and is a great way to help children get the nutrition they need as it is full of calcium and a good source of several important vitamins which are important for the growth and development of young children.

Jersey Dairy are supplying over 20 Jersey primary schools, that’s 6,000 pupils, with milk bottles containing 2.5% fresh Jersey milk.

There will be no cost to the schools or students. Jersey Dairy’s farmers will supply the milk for free and it will be processed, packaged and delivered for free by Jersey Dairy.

Eamon Fenlon, Managing Director of Jersey Dairy, says, “We get a lot of positive feedback from children and parents about our milk, so are delighted to be helping primary schools take part in this world-wide event. Jersey milk contains a variety of nutrients which are important for the growth and development of young children and Jersey milk is a natural, nutritious and delicious drink. As a local, community-based business we are delighted to support an initiative that promotes healthy living and develops learning amongst our student population in Jersey”.
