Applications for the Milk and Healthy Snack Scheme have opened up for parents to apply in Perth and Kinross.
They opened on June 1 and will close on July 3, so applications must be made through the council.
The scheme funds a daily portion of milk, or infant formula, and fruit or vegetables for every child aged 5 and under who accesses an early years childcare setting, such as a nursery or childminder.
A spokesperson for the council said: “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.”
After registration, the Council’s Early Learning and Childcare team will contact all settings to confirm final arrangements.
