Free Milk


 Share

Recommended Posts

We got our free nursery milk delivered today, and when collected it from the doorstep, it was all Semi-Skimmed.

 

I rang up the company and they said that it is a decision by the government, that it will now be semi-skimmed, and that I should have been informed of it.

 

Does anyone else know about this?

Thanks for looking that up Running Bunny. I felt a bit annoyed when I rang the milk company, as I know that we should be encouraging children to eat healthily, but surely milk is milk - and they're taking it a bit too far.

 

We've decided to buy Full Fat for under 2s, and use the free milk for the older children.

hmmmm,

 

not heard anything about this, we get an allowance towards our milk (not sure how much, nor if they stipulate how it should be spent, ie semi skimmed, full fat etc). The head office deal with the milk order and so far ours has been arriving as it should be.... that is when it is not pinched off the doorstep.... which i find mightily sad when its quiet clear its a nursery they are pinching milk from, makes my blood boil....
