Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme (Scotland) Regulations 2021: equality impact assessment

This Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) was conducted in relation to the Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme (Scotland) Regulations 2021 which will replace the application of the 1996 Regulations and UK Nursery Milk Scheme in Scotland from 1 August 2021.

Monitoring and Review

We intend to use existing platforms to evaluate the performance of the Scheme. We will include questions within the current Care Inspectorate Annual Returns which all care settings in Scotland are required to submit at the end of each year. This will help us identify any underlying issues that may need to be addressed, as well as assessing the uptake of the new Scheme. Local Authorities will carry out an effective monitoring procedure and report back to Scottish Ministers accordingly. Engagement with stakeholders has made clear the importance of ensuring that settings in receipt of funding for this Scheme must fulfil the obligations of delivering a milk and healthy snack.
