Achievements of Breakfast Week 2016
It's almost two months since Breakfast Week already - how is that possible?! We've been busy undertaking a full campaign evaluation in that time and would like to share some of the key results with you.
Modern life means we all have demands on our time – and it can seem like there’s little time to make and eat breakfast before heading out of the house. That shouldn’t mean that breakfast gets forgotten – especially as there are so many quick and easy choices – but which breakfast is right for you?
New research, conducted by Cardiff University, shows that children who eat breakfast perform better at school than those who arrive hungry.
Breakfast Week 2016 takes place from 24 – 30 January 2016 and we’ll be calling on you to take Mission Breakfast by rethinking the first meal of the day. We’ve had a little rethink ourselves here at Shake Up Your Wake Up as you’ll see from our new branding and website. We hope you like it!
We’re really pleased to be running the Best Breakfast Awards again this year, as we had a great response when we launched them last year. The awards celebrate the fantastic and varied breakfast dishes served up and down the country. We are looking for the best dishes, the ones that stand out on the menu and use fresh and, where possible, local ingredients.
It’s official: Tried & True café in Putney offers the most innovative breakfast in the country! The café was awarded the Best Breakfast Award for their BBQ Pulled Pork Benedict when the winners were announced on Monday, and today was our chance to try itmers doing so each wee.
It’s official: Tavern Co, Liverpool offers the best breakfast in the country! The restaurant, found metres from the famous Penny Lane, has been awarded the Best Breakfast Award for their Full English, beating hundreds of venues across the UK. The awards, taking place as part of Farmhouse Breakfast Week, recognise the growing trend of eating breakfast out, with 1 in 4 consumers doing so each week.
I am the Education Officer at the Newbury & District Agricultural Society and we run a range of educational events, working with schools across Berkshire, to teach children about the origins of food, how it is produced and the benefits of a healthy diet.
Last month we launched nominations for our Best Breakfast Awards and we’ve been delighted with the response so far. It’s been great to see the huge range of breakfast options being served up and down the country. If you haven’t put your venue forward yet there’s still plenty of time to get those nominations in before public voting opens in December. Just visit our Best Breakfast Awards page for all the details.
Where does time go? We can't believe it's a whole month already since Farmhouse Breakfast Week. We've been busy reviewing all the media coverage (which is still coming in) and talking to supporters to find out how your events went. It seems like everyone was as delighted with Farmhouse Breakfast Week as we were.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who got involved with Farmhouse Breakfast Week this year. Whether you held your own event or promotion, uploaded your photos for #BreakfastWatch or took the Breakfast Week Challenge, you helped to make Farmhouse Breakfast Week a great success once again!
Farmhouse Breakfast Week has nearly come to an end and we’ve had a great time celebrating the most important meal of the day – we hope you have too!
As Farmhouse Breakfast Week continues to get the nation talking breakfast once again, this year has seen a whole new visual element - #BreakfastWatch. Supported by Nadia Sawalha, who has recorded videos of her breakfast each day, we’ve had hundreds of images of your breakfasts shared with us so far.
Tuesday already – Farmhouse Breakfast Week is flying by!
Hundreds of thousands of school children* across the country are missing out on breakfast as a quarter (24%) of parents admit to not ensuring their children eat a morning meal. Mums are also neglecting their own health with 42 per cent of them skipping breakfast once a week or more and one in ten admitting to never eating breakfast.
Good morning everyone. We hope the cold weather hasn’t been causing you too many problems.
I hope you’re as excited as we are that our annual celebration of breakfast has arrived. There are so many great things going on all week from events and promotions, to radio interviews, the Breakfast Week Challenge, and of course #BreakfastWatch which kicked off this morning.
After months of planning and preparation we are excited that Farmhouse Breakfast Week is now less than one week away. Starting on Sunday 20th January, there are a whole host of events and promotions taking place across the country to celebrate the most important meal of the day. If you’re planning on holding an event there’s still time to register on the website to let us and others know how you’re showing your support for breakfast – and don’t forget to tell your local media about it too.
We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day – or at least we should do! But how many of us are making time for it? And if so what are we actually eating and what time do we sit down for the first meal of the day? Our new study* into the nation’s breakfast eating habits, conducted ahead of Farmhouse Breakfast Week (20-26 January 2013), has the answers to this and so much more.
Here at Shake Up Your Wake Up it always puts a smile on our face when we find people who love breakfast as much as we do... and guess what we have! We've teamed up with breakfast fan and TV cookery expert Nadia Sawalha who is going to be helping us to encourage you all to Shake Up Your Wake Up during Farmhouse Breakfast Week in January.
