A “magic” breakfast is healthy and nutritious. It is designed to give children energy, protein, vitamins and minerals, and is low in sugar, salt and fat. The food Magic Breakfast provides to schools complies with government school food standards and regulations in Scotland and England.
Magic Breakfast provide Quaker porridge, Nestle cereals, special recipe Bagel Nash bagels (made using a mix of wholemeal and white flour, low fat, Vitamin D-enhanced, with no artificial additives) We buy their own milk and spreads and colleagues from 'Magic Breakfast' offer guidance on portion size and the amount of spread that is appropriate for school age children to consume.
In the academic year 2017/18 Magic Breakfast provided:
2,016,727 bowls of cereal
1,765,446 glasses of juice
242,705 bowls of porridge
We had our first monitoring visit in July and the scheme is pleased at how we have incorporated the healthy food that they provide into our snack time.
