Park View School receives Breakfast Club boost from Kellogg's
Tuesday 18 July 2017
Park View School received a £1,000 grant from cereal maker Kellogg’s after completing an online training course to enhance their existing breakfast club.
The free training course, developed by Northumbria University, gives practical support and advice on how to run an effective breakfast club covering aspects such as child nutrition, food hygiene, advertising and how to access other sources of funding.
Kellogg’s offers the training programme following the outcome of a national audit of school breakfast clubs across the UK, which examined the challenges schools face in sustaining their clubs. The findings revealed that although 85 per cent of schools had a breakfast club, 45 percent of these admitted funding was the single biggest need for the future of their club.
Ms Mock – Extra-curricular activities coordinator, said:
“We are thrilled to have been awarded £1000 from Kellogg’s towards developing the school breakfast club. The money will help us to plan an exciting new healthy menu and provide us with more activities for our students to enjoy in the morning.”
Kellogg’s supports breakfast clubs across the UK with training, cereal donations and funding so that schools can run a sustainable pre-school club. To apply for a grant schools can visit the Breakfast for Better Days website (external link).
Kellogg’s started its breakfast club programme in 1998 when there were barely any breakfast clubs in the UK. Today, 85 per cent of schools now run a club.
Kate Prince, Corporate Social Responsibility manager, at Kellogg’s, said
“We believe all children should have the opportunity to start the day with breakfast, and we’re really proud of what we have achieved through our breakfast club programme, helping to support 2,500 clubs with training, funding and cereal donations.”
