Latvia mentioned as an example of good practice in promoting the programme “School Milk and Fruit”
Programme website www.piensaugliskolai.lv is recognized as one of the best practice examples among other European Union countries. The website contains all the current information about the programme, activities for children, materials for teachers and other information in Latvian and English.
Also this year implementers of the program will organize various activities in Latvian educational institutions. For example, in October pupils (grades 1-3) will receive an interesting exercise book, while in the spring there will be organized competitions within the ZZ Championship and other exciting activities for children.
Over 20 million children in the European Union receive dairy products, fruits and vegetables, drinking more than 178 million liters of milk and eating 255 million kilograms of fruit and vegetables in total within the programme.
