A HEARTY full English breakfast was dished up to schoolchildren at Hatton Adventure World.
Pupils from Ferncumbe Church of England School in Hatton were collected by tractor and open-top trailer and transported to the popular family attraction where they learnt about the benefits of eating a good breakfast.
Breakfast, including locally sourced bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, baked beans, and wholemeal toast, was served by members of the Warwickshire branch of the National Farmers’ Union (NFU).
Danny James, NFU group secretary for Central Warwickshire & Henley in Arden, said “The NFU are delighted to encourage children to eat a good hearty breakfast.
“Going to school having eaten a nutritious breakfast gives children so many health benefits and helps them perform well in the classroom. It’s important for children to understand why breakfast is so essential”.
Alice Latham, assistant farm manager at Hatton Adventre World, added: “It’s important to explain why breakfast is so essential, especially at this time of year when children are susceptible to illnesses and catching covid”.
Before breakfast was served the children took part in drawing activities and games to understand where the produce comes from. After breakfast they walked around the farmyard to feed and pet the animals including the guinea pigs.
