As part of Farmhouse Breakfast Week from 22 to 28 January over 100 children from Oxfordshire’s Longcot & Fernham Primary School enjoyed a hearty breakfast from local Wiltshire farmer and producer Helen Browning’s Organic.

Despite the rain they happily munche on organic bacon and sausages to mark the week which has the theme: ‘shake up your wake up’.
Several studies have shown eating breakfast can have a positive impact on concentration levels. A Reading University study showed that average Key Stage 2 results were significantly higher in the year after the introduction of a breakfast club in 13 primary schools in deprived areas of London.
Twenty per cent of Mums and Dads say they are too busy in the morning to make time for breakfast and, at the same time, they find the morning between 8am and 8.30am to be the most stressful time.
Having breakfast can help to reduce stress levels and does not need to be time consuming. Helen Browning’s organic Speedy Sausages, gluten-free, cook in just 4 minutes. Kids love the spicy kick and, eaten as part of a balanced diet, they are nutritious and satisfying.
They are available at supermarkets, and the bacon is now online at Ocado. The sausages are to be launched by the online retailer in the next few weeks.
