At a conference on August 6 on the school milk programme, Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Education and Training Pham Xuan Tien said milk will continue to be supplied to local school children as from September 6.

The deputy director required district and communal departments of education and training to conduct inspections of milk supply at schools to ensure food safety, and support local authorities to encourage parents to register their children for the programme, under which families only have to pay 47 percent of the milk price. Poor, near-poor, ethnic minority students and social policy beneficiaries will receive free milk under the programme.

Schools are requested to ensure that children drink milk right in school, not giving milk to children to bring home.

The school milk programme was started at schools in Hanoi on January 2, 2019, and just on the first day, 64 percent of children at local preschool and primary schools joined the programme. After one week, 100 percent of public preschool and primary schools and 61.8 percent of private schools participated in the programme, and the rate of participating students reached 73 percent.
