One child particularly was not interested in drinking the milk. Advised staff person she could not force the child to drink the milk, but had met the regulation by providing the milk to child. The milk pitcher was put on the serving table with cups. The children were told that the milk was on the table and could come and poor some milk for their lunch. Many children came to the table and poured their cup of milk. It appeared that other children joined the line as they saw children being able to pour their own milk.
