School milk conferences

P. Morin / FAO

FAO has cooperated with a number of national organisations in presenting a series of regional and international conferences on the provision of milk to school-aged children. The conferences focus on providing a forum for the exchange of information and experiences between professionals working with school milk programmes.

FAO's role in these conferences is principally in the area of planning the technical programme and serving as a central contact point. Topic covered depend on the particular interests of the region in which the conference is held; however, these would typically include an international overview of school milk programmes, the role of milk in child nutrition, and the administration and financing of school milk programmes.
