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 wasn’t always very pleasant – it wasn’t 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?
