Irish schools are to receive over €3.3 million from the EU Fruit, Vegetables and Milk scheme.

The money will fund the programme until the end of the school Summer term in 2020.

Last year 200,000 children in 1,345 Irish schools benefitted from the scheme.

Grace Bolton of the European Commission office in Ireland says the funding also promotes education about healthy eating.
