11 News World School Milk Day at Ysgol Henry Richard THE CEREDIGION branch

of the Farmers’ Union of Wales recently provided free milk drinks to children at Ysgol Henry Richard, Tregaron, in celebration of the 17th World School Milk Day. The Union and pupils joined

countries around the world highlighting the health benefits of school milk programmes and over 170 pupils enjoyed a cup of Welsh Milk in their break time. FUW Ceredigion’s County

Executive Officer, Mared Rand Jones, said: “It’s very important that we, as an industry, go to schools to promote agriculture and educate the next generation about how their food is produced. “Milk and dairy products have an

important part to play in our daily diet as they provide an important source of protein and calcium and contain essential vitamins and minerals, all of which are needed for a balanced diet. “Indeed, the exclusion of

dairy products from the ‘sugar tax’ demonstrates the role such products play in a healthy diet.” With an increasing amount of

research into milk as a recovery and re-hydration aid, there is a growing body of evidence suggesting milk may be just as effective in these areas

as some sports or other energy drinks. “Milk can definitely help pupils

stay hydrated and keep their energy levels up in class and it is a much healthier option than some of the sugary drinks available. I would like to thank Ysgol Henry Richard head teacher Dorian Pugh and all the staff for their support today and look forward to work with the school in educating pupils about farming matters and where their food comes from,” added Mared Rand Jones.

Dorian Pugh commented: “As a school, we are very happy to be able to work with the FUW in order to promote World School Milk Day. At Ysgol Henry Richard, we understand the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and drinking milk and the pupils really enjoyed meeting Mared
