AMY GUTHRIE and Ewan Findlay, of Letham Primary School, recently enjoyed a healthy breakfast provided by Carol Littlewood (centre) of the Royal Highland Education Trust Angus Countryside Initiative.

In total, healthy breakfasts were served to over 460 children in primary schools in Angus and Dundee. At each event the children are given a talk about locally produced food and specifically those on offer for the children to try that day.

They were also told about the importance of having a healthy breakfast to help concentration and maximise learning ability. The children were able to try a wide range of foods, the menu being porridge, a selection of wheat and oat based cereals, yoghurt, fruit salad, bread, rolls and oatcakes, jam, honey, cheese, milk, apple and fruit and vegetable juices.

Everyone was encouraged to try something they had never tried before, whether a different flavour of yogurt, brown bread or porridge.
