Magic Breakfast

Magic Breakfast provides healthy breakfasts to thousands of children across the country, ensuring that they do not start the day too hungry to learn

Every school day, Magic Breakfast fuels the learning of thousands of vulnerable children across the UK, helping them to reach their full academic potential through the simple provision of a nutritious breakfast.

When a child is too hungry to learn - when they're aching for something to eat - they can't concentrate. They can't absorb information. Big feelings and worries can be impossible to control. They are more likely to be restless, unhappy, lethargic, distracted, or disruptive in lessons, putting them at risk of missing out on up to four hours of vital lessons every single morning. Over a school year, that's around 800 hours of learning that's compromised because of hunger. Breakfast unlocks these hours of life-changing education.

The concept is simple, but the impact on educational attainment and the futures of young people is huge.

A recent study by the Institute of Fiscal Studies showed that a nutritious magic breakfast can boost attainment in key school subjects by two months over a year at the end of Infants, while Leeds University found that students who ate breakfast regularly achieved nearly two grades higher in their GCSEs than their peers.

Breakfast really is magic!
