Milk and healthy snack scheme: Operation and Implementation Group


We have established the Implementation and Operation Group to gather learning from the first year of the Scottish Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme. The objective of the Scheme is to improve children’s health and nutrition and to tackle health inequalities. The Group’s role is to ensure that the scheme is meeting its objectives.    

The Group was established in September 2021. It will run for the first six months  of the scheme. During this initial period it will provide advice and recommendations to Scottish Ministers on the delivery of the Scheme. This will inform year two of the Scheme which starts in August  2022.

We are currently recruiting for members of the Group. We will update the page when we have filled the posts.
