Frequently Asked Questions
Who Can Apply For The FREE Milk Scheme?
Anyone who is a registered childminder, pre-school, nursery or playgroup with a current registration certificate. Please note that both individuals and organisations providing day care for less than 2 hrs per day, do NOT qualify for approval under the rules of this scheme. Parents and relatives of the child and privately employed nannies are also NOT eligible under the free milk scheme rules.
What Time Will My Free Milk Be Delivered?
We aim to deliver your free, fresh milk between 6am and 9am. We deliver Monday to Friday only, as most child care providers do not require milk over the weekend.
What Is The Milk Allowance?
189ml (1/3 of a pint) for each child on a daily basis, for each day they attend an approved childcare provider for 2 hours or more.
KidzMILK takes the time to get your allowance correct, if you currently receive more milk from your current supplier than you are entitled to, it is the child care provider that will be held responsible for paying any due monies back to the NMRU, not your supplier.
With this in mind, KidzMILK identifies and clearly explains your entitlement, to get it right first time round. We take our business and service very seriously and are committed to providing the very best service possible.
How Does Milk Benefit The Children?
Milk is one of the most nutritionally complete foods available on the food market to date.
It is naturally a good provider of a whole range of nutrients that are essential to growth, development and maintenance of the human body and contains no artificial preservatives or colourings.
Relatively small quantities of milk can provide a significant proportion of daily nutrient requirements for all age groups, making it nutrient rich relative to its energy content.
In addition to its contribution to nutrient intake, increased milk consumption has also been linked to reducing the risk of numerous health problems such as osteoporosis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity to name but a few.
Milk therefore makes a significant contribution to the human diet through provision of the macro-nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
