Hearty breakfast served up to youngsters at Hatton Adventure World

A HEARTY breakfast was dished up to school children at Hatton Adventure World.

The full English was served uo to 26 youngsters, aged five to six, from Ferncumbe Church of England School in Hatton on Tuesday (January 24).

They were collected by tractor and open-top trailer and transported to the popular family attraction where they learnt about the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast.

In its 17th year, this initiative is enjoyed and supported by the school, National Farmers Union, and Hatton Adventure World.

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 including the NFU Group Secretary, Danny James.

Alice Latham, Assistant Farm Manager at Hatton, said: “Hatton Adventure World once again enjoyed working with the NFU and feeding a hearty breakfast to the pupils. It’s important to explain why breakfast is so essential, especially at this time of year when children are susceptible to illnesses.”

Danny James, NFU Group Secretary, Central Warwickshire and Henley, continued: “The NFU are delighted to encourage children to eat a good breakfast to start their day. Going to school having eaten a nutritious breakfast gives children so many health benefits and helps them perform well in the classroom.”

Charlotte Forbes, a teacher from Ferncumbe School, added: “We are lucky to have Hatton Adventure World on our doorstep and for the children to visit the farmyard each year. Many children believe food comes from supermarkets, so it’s important they know where food comes from and the link between the animals they feed and what they eat. It’s important they take responsibility for their healthy food choices at home and school.”

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, goats, and snakes.
