Magic Breakfast

Magic Breakfast, a registered UK charity, aims to end hunger as a barrier to learning through the provision of healthy breakfasts for vulnerable children. The charity believes that a hungry child cannot concentrate so will miss out on half of the day’s lessons. The charity provides healthy breakfast food and expert support to qualifying primary and secondary schools. It works with 480 primary, secondary and special educational needs schools, plus Pupil Referral Units, to make sure that more than 40,300 children start their school day in the best possible way. The charity’s motto is ‘no child too hungry to learn’. According to a recent survey:
- 96 % of respondents reported that provision of breakfast had led to improved energy levels/alertness amongst the participating pupils
- 92 % of respondents reported that provision of breakfast had led to improved concentration levels amongst the participating pupils
- 91 % of respondents reported that provision of breakfast had led to improved educational attainment levels, for the participating pupils
- 81 % of respondents reported that the behaviour of participating pupils had improved, as a result of breakfast provision
