Do you need to re-register?

Childcare providers who were issued with an NMRU number prior to 26/09/2016 need to re-register before submitting further claims.


What is the Nursery Milk Scheme?

The Nursery Milk Scheme is operated by the Nursery Milk Reimbursement Unit (NMRU) on behalf of the Department of Health. It entitles children under 5 years who attend approved day care facilities to receive 189ml (1/3 pint) of milk each day, free of charge.
