Magic Breakfast

Magic Breakfast's objective is to solve the problem of UK child hunger and malnutrition in the mornings as a barrier to education. Magic Breakfast's aim is to offer a nutritious breakfast to every child in the UK who needs one. We work toward this goal primarily through food aid and practical support, setting up school breakfast clubs in the most deprived communities and delivering free, nutritious food to them. Magic Breakfast also makes the case for change, creating wider public awareness around the issue of child hunger as a barrier to education and influencing policy makers to create lasting societal change. Finally, Magic Breakfast promotes healthy eating through its provision of nutritious breakfast options such as bagels, porridge and fresh fruit juice. In doing so, we help educate both children and their parents about the importance of eating well. At present, Magic Breakfast serves over 17,500 children in 443 schools (all where over 35% of students are eligible for free school meals) across the country.

Our nutritionist ensures that the food we provide to over 22,000 school children daily (eg: "magic" bagels) is low in sugar, fat and salt and complies with the government's School Food Standards. Unfortunately basic breakfast food such as bread can be a big "hidden" source of salt. Our nutritionist recommends that a salt level of 0.3 to 1.5g/100g in bread is ok - any more is too high!

1 in 10 reception pupils are obese. On leaving primary school it’s 1 in 5. Eating breakfast encourages a healthier lunch #schoolmealsshoutout
