EU Consultation: possibility to include nuts and nut-based drinks in the EU school fruit, vegetables and milk scheme
23 MAY 2022
The EU Commission has started a public consultation on the review of the EU school fruit, vegetables and milk scheme as a part of the Farm to Fork Strategy. The scheme has been applicable since 2017 and has supported the distribution of fruit, vegetables, milk and milk products to schoolchildren and educational activities to encourage the adoption of healthy habits.
The consultation is in the form of a questionnaire and will run until 28 July 2022.
One of the questions regards possible products to be included in the scheme, including nuts and nut-based drinks (e.g., almond drink).
