The School Breakfast Bill calls for legislation which will see vulnerable children receive a free breakfast while at school. The proposals for the Bill have been underpinned by research from N8 AgriFood Chair at the University of Leeds Professor Louise Dye, and colleagues Dr Katie Adolphus and Dr Clare Lawton. Their findings have been cited not only in the Bill’s proposals but also debated as it progresses through Parliament. Their articles published in Frontiers – The effects of breakfast on behaviour and academic performance in children and adolescents and Associations between habituate school-day breakfast consumption frequency and academic performance in British adolescents, along with their review in Advances in Nutrition – The effects of breakfast and breakfast consumption on cognition in children and adolescents: A systematic review all provide the crucial evidence of the need for the new legislation.
