Pete Hodgson celebrates the 70th anniversary of the start of Milk in Schools with participating Fruit in Schools students

Porirua — Tomorrow marks the 70th anniversary the introduction of free milk to New Zealand primary school children, Health Minister Pete Hodgson said from Corinna School in Porirua today. The idea was first recommended during the Depression but it was not until 1935 when Labour swept to power that the scheme was introduced and children received a free half pint bottle at each morning break.
