Good start breakfast club

 

Overview

The Good start breakfast clubs project provide a healthy breakfast and nutrition information for thousands of school kids, who may otherwise go to school hungry, in areas of greatest need around Australia.

Providing a healthy breakfast helps children to achieve their best in the classroom and in the playground. Schools are supported to set up breakfast clubs, to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children can sit down and enjoy a nutritious morning meal with others. It is also a place where caring adults can be role models for healthy eating and good hygiene.

Breakfast clubs are run right around the country, from cities and towns to remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. One of the long-term goals is to support communities to run their own breakfast clubs, ensuring community ownership and control as well as sustainability of the program.
