    hi all,

    my mum mentioned to be the other day that i should be getting milk tokens at some point.
    does anyone know IF/WHEN they start and where do you use them... my mum used to change them with the local milkman for cash then buy milk!!!

    I'm pretty sure you have to be on income support or a low wage to qualify for these, they are not given to everybody.

    i posted the link up there so ppl can check themselves what they are able to get,
    i personally am trying to convince DH we should give up WTC as its less than what we would get in the vouchers and with 2 toddlers in the house then we go through a fair share of milk and fruit and vege

    I deffo am not entitled as we earn 'too much' apparantly. Will be entitled to approx £45 per mnth CTC and no WTC.

    If I was in your shoes I would deffo give up WTC!! Lol.
