No recent assessment has been made of the benefits of the Nursery Milk Scheme.

Following the Department's proposed response to the ‘Next Steps for Nursery Milk’ consultation, the Secretary of State for Education, my right hon. Friend Michael Gove, wrote in April 2013 to confirm his Department's increased contribution to the Nursery Milk scheme. This increase is a result of the Department for Education offering funded early education places to two-year-olds from September 2013.
