School milk in Finland

School meal service in Finland is one of a kind in the world, since free school lunches are served at comprehensive schools as well as at upper levels every school day. The first catering kitchens in schools were established in the early 1900`s. In 1943 a law was passed requiring the municipalities to arrange a free lunch for all pupils at elementary schools and since late 70`s the school meals have been free to all pupils from primary to high school levels, aged 7-19.
