A Good Practice Guide for Breakfast Clubs
Breakfast has long been considered the ‘most important meal of the day’. Research has shown that eating a nutritious breakfast has a positive impact on the nutritional intake of children and mediates against obesity. Children going to school hungry cannot fully participate in class which can have a detrimental impact on their personal, cognitive, social and educational development. Breakfast clubs are a great opportunity to ensure that children who may not have breakfast before attending school do so.
