MP visits playgroup for World School Milk Day
An MP gave her support to World School Milk Day by serving up glasses to children at a playgroup.
MP for Hornsey and Wood Green Lynne Featherstone visited children at the Salvation Army playgroup, in Lymington Avenue, Wood Green, to talk about the benefits of drinking milk.
The international day is celebrated in 30 countries and is organised by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations.
In the UK, MPs around the country have been visiting their local primary schools and nurseries to hand out glasses of milk.
The Lib Dem MP said: “I was delighted to get involved in World School Milk Day, and to visit one of the playgroups in my constituency.
“It’s great that one and a half million children in the UK already receive free milk every day, but it would be better if the figure was higher.”
