National School Breakfast Programme
At least half a million children in the UK arrive at school each day too hungry to learn. Research has shown a direct link between the breakfast habits of children and their educational attainment, with Year 2 children in primary schools where breakfast is provided achieving on average up to two months’ additional academic progress over the course of a year.
Our exciting National School Breakfast Programme, in partnership with Magic Breakfast and funded by the Department for Education has so far supported over 1,800 schools in disadvantaged communities across England to improve access to healthy breakfasts and learning.
The Programme aims to:
Ensure more children receive a healthy breakfast at the start of their school day.
Improve educational outcomes for disadvantaged young people
Share best practices across schools and encourage innovative approaches to school breakfast provision.
