Magic Breakfast


Magic Breakfast is a UK registered charity dedicated to ensuring every child starts their school day with the right breakfast as fuel for learning.  Magic Breakfast believes no child's education should suffer for the lack of a breakfast so every school day they deliver free, nutritious breakfasts to schools where over 35% of pupils are eligible for free school meals.

They do this because in each of the 400 plus schools they support, children arrive too hungry to learn. Eating a healthy breakfast helps with concentration, behaviour, attendance and attainment.

Magic Breakfast already feeds more than 16,500 children each morning, but they have over 250 schools on a waiting list and know that over half a million children in the UK go to school hungry every day.

A hungry child is more likely to be restless, unhappy, lethargic, distracted or disruptive in lessons. They are frequently told by teachers about children displaying or reporting stomach aches and in some cases slipping under the desk having fainted from hunger. A hungry child is simply not ready for learning.
