Scottish Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme - registration now open

From 1 August 2021, the Scottish Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme will fund a daily portion of milk (or infant formula for babies) and a portion of fruit or vegetables for every child aged 5 and under who accesses an early years childcare setting, such as a nursery or childminder.

All settings must register through their local council. In Perth and Kinross, the initial registration process is open from Tuesday 1 June to Saturday 3 July, and childcare providers can register via our online registration form. After registration, the Council's Early Learning and Childcare team will contact all settings to confirm final arrangements.

We would ask settings to ensure they register by or before the 3 July deadline as any registrations submitted after this date will not be processed in time for the first month of payment in August.
