The new “Milk at schools” program, started in April, is funded by the European Union and implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry in collaboration with Unioncamere. The program aims to promote a path of proper nutrition education on the consumption of milk and its derivatives, addressed to primary school students and their families.
In these days, about 420,000 primary school pupils in Italy are tasting fresh milk, yogurt and fresh and aged cheeses, coming from local, typical and certified quality products.

Along with the distribution of some products in the supply chain, specific information and educational programs are planned on the importance of healthy eating and how food is produced; activities involving the chamber system and CREA Food and Nutrition Research Center.
