Flipping their way to a healthier start to the day

Three Peterborough schools were given a hands-on breakfast experience during Kids Country’s Breakfast Week.

From making pancakes and sausages to meeting a real life farmer, children at Braybrook Primary School, Dogsthorpe Academy and Farcet C of E Primary School where taught how to cook their way to a healthier start to the day.

Kids Country visits schools for Breakfast Week to encourage children to understand the nutritional value of their food and to give them the chance to experience the whole farm to fork process.

“The best day at school – EVER!”

Member and Community Relations Officer at Central England Co-op Kym Hunt said: “We were delighted to once again support Kids Country and National Breakfast Week following the success of the partnership in previous years in raising awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of breakfast.

We always welcome the chance to make a real difference to the lives and education of local children and this collaboration provided the perfect opportunity to do just that, and was a hugely rewarding experience for all involved.”

Deputy Head Teacher at Farcet C of E Primary School Nicola Martin said: “The children loved all the activities on offer and learnt so much about how their food gets from the farm to their plates.

Feedback from one of our pupils included: ‘This has been the best day at school – EVER!’”

With such high demand for the Kids Country Breakfast Week there are now plans to run another Breakfast Week event later in the year! To get your school booked into the next Breakfast Week head to https://www.eastofengland.org.uk/all-events or call 01733 234451.
