Wimbledon Park pupils kick start the week with a healthy breakfast

Following on from the successful Wimbledon Farmers Market held at the school every weekend, pupils and staff from Wimbledon Park Primary have joined forces with the organisers to celebrate ‘Farmhouse Breakfast Week’, which runs from the 25 to 31 January.

The farmers market provided a special breakfast for pupils this morning, to help promote healthy eating and highlight the importance of starting the day with a healthy breakfast.

Headteacher, Dee Russell, said:

“This morning has been a great success, the children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and would like to thank the farmers market for providing the fresh fruit and yogurt. It was a wonderful sight to see them tucking into a healthy breakfast.”

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is organised by Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA). The campaign, now in its fifth year, has been highly successful in highlighting both the important nutritional messages behind eating a healthy breakfast and the wide variety of superb quality breakfast foods produced in this country. The campaign also highlights whole grains, a rich source of dietary fibre, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants. Whole grains have many positive health benefits but around one third of UK adults don’t consume any in their diet.
