YOUNGSTERS at a Northumberland first school have been making health breakfasts to celebrate Farmhouse Breakfast Week.

Pupils at Choppington First School were learning the importance of starting the day with the most important meal – a healthy breakfast – by getting stuck in and making fruit and bran pancakes.

Headteacher Hilda Blythe said: “We have been very fortunate to be offered support from Greggs the bakers in order to provide a sustainable Breakfast Club at the school, so children are now provided with a free healthy breakfast each day if they wish to take it up.

“Lots of mums have volunteered to help and educational games keep them occupied after their meal.

“The children really enjoyed making – and tasting – the pancakes.”
