Breakfast – the most important meal of the day

As a teacher and a foodie the one thing guaranteed to bring a tear to my eye is realising that a child in my class has come to school without having breakfast. We all know how feeling hungry can distract us and research shows that it also makes us irritable and moody. Lack of breakfast seriously undermines that child’s ability to concentrate and learn new things.

It’s a shameful indictment of our society that families in crises have to send their children to school without breakfast. More and more families now rely on food banks – more than you might think. Contributing some tins or packets to your local food bank is a practical way of offering help.
