Résumé : Last July, the Commission approved a regulation proposal by the Council for establishing a fruit and vigetable promotion and distribution programme in schools, called the School Fruit Scheme (SFS). This proposal should be approved by the end of the year and the first programmes started with the 2009/10 academic year. This article discusses the reasons in which this initiative is rooted of an agricultural, public health and educational nature; the importance of an initiative in schools and of the consideration of social and regional inequalities. In concludes with a general thought, placing this initiative in the general evolution of the Common Agricultural Policy; it is a further step towards an even more consumer and citizen-orientated CAP.
