|Free milk was first supplied in 1933 one third of a pint for each child to ensure a healthier diet. Prior to that there was either no milk or children could bring a halfpenny to school to get a bottle of milk.|
|Milk monitors would hand out the bottles of full-cream milk in the morning.
The milk wasnt always very pleasant it wasnt kept in fridges but stored in the playground in big delivery crates - in the summer it would get too warm and in the winter it would freeze and have to be put on the radiators to defrost!
|How much milk was given to each child?
What happened to the milk in winter?
