MP for Hendon Dr Matthew Offord celebrates World School Milk Day
The MP for Hendon went back to the classroom as he took on the role of milk monitor to celebrate World School Milk Day.
Schoolchildren welcomed Dr Matthew Offord to Dollis Infant School in Mill Hill, where they were told all about the nutritional benefits of drinking milk.
World School Milk Day is an initiative organised by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and has been celebrated by children drinking milk in more than 30 countries since 2000.
In the UK, an estimated 1.5 million children under the age of five receive free milk every day, while pupils who are between five and eleven years old receive subsidised milk.
Dr Offord was one of many MPs who visited schools across the UK to celebrate the initiative yesterday.
