To mark World School Milk Day 2023 and to show support for making healthy nutritious milk available in all local schools, Foysol Choudhury MSP and Brian Whittle MSP visited Bright Horizons Elsie Inglis Early Learning and Childcare Nursery on September 27th and met children attending.
World School Milk Day is celebrated across the world to highlight the health and nutritional benefits of milk in schools, and to encourage more school children to drink milk. This year, schools and nurseries across the country have been taking part in a variety of activities to mark the day including various themed activities within the classroom.
Brian Whittle MSP said: “It’s great to be here at Elsie Inglis Nursery to meet some of my youngest constituents! I’m delighted to see so many of the pupils here enjoying their daily milk, especially on World School Milk Day.”
Director of Operations, Michele, at Bright Horizons said: "Our Bright Horizons staff teams are fully committed to supporting the creation of healthy eating habits for our youngest children, in the knowledge that they provide a positive foundation for future development. Offering milk with every meal in the nursery supports this and embeds the message of milk being a healthy option.
“Our colleagues were so excited to welcome Members of Scottish Parliament to our Elsie Inglis Nursery to celebrate World School Milk Day 2023. The nursery is in the heart of the city and providing quality experiences, including provision of healthy dietary options is at the heart of all the team do."
