CHILDREN at Carlton in Snaith Primary School thought Selby MP Nigel Adams was ‘all white’ as he helped them celebrate World School Milk Day.
Mr Adams marked the day by handing out milk to youngsters at the Town End Avenue school.
The school was one of thousands across more than 30 countries which took part in celebrations.
The day encouraged children to drink milk and aimed to educate them about the benefits of milk.
Mr Adams said: “I am very pleased to support World School Milk Day. I know myself how much goodness there is in milk, especially for children, and during a busy school day it gives them a vital boost of energy which in turn helps them to concentrate better.”
Claire Bramley, from the school, said: “Milk is a valuable part of the Foundation Stage snack routine where the children are taught vital social skills. Milk helps to enhance concentration and creativity as well as building a strong immune system.”
John Sedgwick, managing director for Cool Milk, said: “Milk in schools continues to be incredibly popular and hugely successful in contributing to the healthy development of all children – but especially where children are struggling to get their daily nutrients.”
