Nursery milk scheme
On 18 June, the Department of Health (DH) launched a Great Britain-wide public consultation on the future of the nursery milk scheme.
The main aim of this consultation is to explore options for modernising and simplifying the operation of the scheme.
- improve efficiency and
- provide better value for money,
while ensuring that all children under five attending a childcare setting for more than two hours a day continue to receive free milk.
Nursery milk is a universal benefit, meaning that childcare settings can claim the cost of milk provided to any child, regardless of home circumstances. All the consultation options ensure that the scheme will continue as a universal benefit.
The consultation will run until 11 September 2012. We are particularly keen to hear your views on proposed options and specific questions. Access the consultation paper, impact assessment and equality analysis on the DH website via the link.
In parallel with the public consultation, we are asking all childcare providers currently registered with the scheme to complete a simple survey. This asks about how the scheme works for them now and how potential changes might affect them and the children they care for. The survey address is:
Any decision on the future operation of the scheme will be taken after full consideration is given to consultation responses and other relevant information.
For any general queries about the scheme or the consultation please email the Department of Health at: firstname.lastname@example.org
