Children will be more attentive in school if they have a good breakfast.
This is the expert opinion of child psychologist Emma Kenny, who noted it is the responsibility of parents to make sure their offspring are well fed before setting off for the day.
It comes after a report by the Guardian discovered teachers have seen an increase in the number of pupils eager to see free breakfasts introduced in school.
As a result of this, the Royal College of GPs, National Association of Head Teachers and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health have called on the government to look into the measure.
"A good breakfast sets them up to have better learning skills during the day because attention spans will be longer and they'll feel more fulfilled and cared for as well," Ms Kenny remarked.
She went on to note a big problem in the UK at the moment is too many kids are eating the wrong foodstuffs at the wrong time, which is leading to problems with obesity.
