“Schools should stimulate healthy eating habits of children”, argues Commission

Jennifer Baker is joined by Pia Ahrenkilde Hansen, spokeswoman of the European Commission, to discuss the food distribution proposal.

On Thursday 30 January, the European Commission proposes a new European school scheme for the distribution of food (fresh fruits, vegetables and drinking milk) to school children. The new proposal aims at addressing the current decline in children’s consumption of fresh products. “We want to make sure that two programs – distribution of milk and distribution of fruits and vegetables to school children, would work together and the bureaucratic inefficiencies would be eliminated. Then we can expect a positive impact on our children’s health“, claims Ahrenkilde Hansen.
