National School Breakfast Programme

Apart from providing us with energy, breakfast foods are good sources of important nutrients such as calcium, iron and B vitamins as well as protein and fibre. The body needs these essential nutrients and research shows that if these are missed at breakfast, they are less likely to be compensated for later in the day.

Magic Breakfast is a charity registered in England (no. 1102510) and Scotland (no. SC048202) ensuring that no child is too hungry to learn through the provision of healthy breakfast food and expert support to schools. A hungry child cannot concentrate so will miss out on half a day of lessons, every day, if not given anything to eat.


The aim of the National School Breakfast Programme is to ensure no child starts the school day too hungry to learn.  To date, more than 500 schools across the country have benefitted from this programme of support.


Magic Breakfast

The Magic Breakfast project provided 106 schools with support and resources to offer a free, universal breakfast. The aim of the project was to improve attainment outcomes by increasing the number of children who ate a healthy breakfast.

Thank you to all the parents who came for our Magic Breakfast books and bagels launch.
