"Eat well – feel good" Commission proposal to reinforce existing school milk and school fruit schemes

“Eat well – feel good” is the slogan of a European Commission proposal presented today, bringing together two currently separate school schemes, the [ http://ec.europa.eu/agriculture/sfs/index_en.htm ]School Fruit Scheme and the [ http://ec.europa.eu/agriculture/milk/school-milk-scheme/index_en.htm ]School Milk Scheme into one enhanced scheme.
The objective of the proposal is to put greater focus on educational measures to improve children’s awareness of healthy eating habits.
In a context of declining consumption among children for these products, the aim is to address poor nutrition more effectively, to reinforce the educational elements of the programmes and to contribute to fight against obesity.
