School Children Enjoy Hearty Breakfast

A delicious, healthy full English breakfast was served to 27 school children at Hatton Adventure World on Monday 11 March. Children aged 6 – 7 from Ferncumbe Church of England School in Hatton were collected by tractor and open-top trailer and transported to Hatton Adventure World, where they learnt about the benefits of eating a hearty breakfast, while enjoying locally sourced bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, baked beans and wholemeal toast.

Breakfast was served by local farmers and members of the Warwickshire branch of the National Farmers’ Union (NFU).  Matt Western, MP for Warwick & Leamington also enjoyed breakfast with the children after meeting with local famers to discuss farming issues.

Matt Western, MP for Leamington & Warwick said, “I enjoyed meeting the children and eating breakfast with them after a very productive meeting with local farmers to discuss the big issues in our community”.

Chris Mann, NFU Branch Chairman, Central Warwickshire said “The NFU are pleased to encourage children to eat a good hearty breakfast. Going to school having eaten a nutritious breakfast gives children many health benefits and helps them perform well in the classroom”.

Kerri Grubb, a teacher from Ferncumbe School said “It’s great to have Hatton Adventure World on our doorstep and for children to visit the Farmyard so they can appreciate the link between the animals they feed and the healthy food they eat”.

Richard Craddock, Adventure World Manager at Hatton, said: “Hatton Adventure World enjoyed working with the NFU and feeding pupils from Ferncumbe School. It’s so important for children to understand why breakfast is so essential, especially at this time of year when many are susceptible to colds”.

After breakfast the children were accompanied around the Farmyard to feed and pet the animals.
