Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day, and for good reason! Over the last 2 years, The National School Breakfast Programme has provided 375,000 children with a school breakfast every day. As a result, schools have reported the overwhelmingly positive benefits of a school breakfast on a child’s readiness to learn, concentration, punctuality and behaviour.
