Study shows children who eat breakfast perform better at school
New research, conducted by Cardiff University, shows that children who eat breakfast perform better at school than those who arrive hungry.

Guest Blog from Jan Murray, Education Officer, Newbury & District Agricultural Society
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.
New games and resources available!
We've been busy adding some new content to our website to make sure the breakfast message keeps going all year round - not just in Farmhouse Breakfast Week! We have a new section called Fun for Kids where we have some interactive games and a wordsearch to help children understand about arable farming and how their breakfast foods are produced. The games are all curriculum linked so they are suitable for use either in school or at home.
Mums and kids miss out on breakfast
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.
