Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja has revealed that parents will contribute between Shs10, 000 and Shs20, 000 each term to ensure their children are fed on milk at School.
Nabbanja was speaking in Parliament during the Prime Minister’s time on Thursday. She was responding to a query raised by Ngora County MP, Juliet Achayo.
Achayo had asked the Prime Minister why the government is adding a burden on parents to pay for milk to be given to children at schools.
The Prime Minister said that milk was chosen because it provides bone-building nutrients, specifically Calcium, Vitamin D and Magnesium that are of high nutrition for good health and development.
She revealed that the government secured a partnership between the Ministry of Education and SNV Uganda, a Netherlands development Organisation which will help in sub-sidizing parents to provide milk for children at schools.
