Asda Gravesend recently donated food to a school breakfast club
Pupils at Cecil Road Primary and Nursery School’s breakfast club learnt the value of eating a balanced breakfast recently, when Asda Gravesend gave the club a donation of food.
Community Champion at the store Christine Connal visited the school last month to highlight the importance breakfast, while donating a range of healthy foods including fruit, multigrain cereal and wholemeal bread.
Miss Connal said: “There is a worrying trend at the moment for skipping breakfast because people are too busy, a good breakfast in an important part of being healthy, and helps children stay alert. It was so much fun meeting the children and teaching them.
Bernadette Vincent, family support officer at Cecil Road, said: “I would like to thank Asda very much for their generous donation, at Cecil Road we are always trying to encourage healthy eating, having Christine come into school and interact with the pupils was a great way of doing that.”
