Breakfast clubs

That often-used saying that ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ is based on fact: children simply can’t concentrate if they haven’t eaten a good breakfast before school. Read how breakfasts help improve children’s performance in class.

Not all schools offer a breakfast club, and they don’t have to run one – so check with your school.

Your school might offer cold essentials – like low-sugar cereals, fruit, toast or bagels – or they may offer hot food too, like scrambled eggs and beans on toast. Whatever they offer has to meet the National School Food Standards.

Your school may be in an area offering free breakfasts for all children, or you may be asked to make a contribution to the cost. Again, check with your school.
