School breakfasts update

Every child deserves to start their day with a healthy breakfast. That is why I joined Emma Lewell-Buck MP in urging the Government to scale up school breakfast funding and make support to schools permanent. See more here.


The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Children and Families, Vicky Ford MP, has recently replied to this letter. You can read her response in full by clicking the pdf link below.


The Government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP) referenced in the letter does not go far enough. It is likely to only provide breakfast club support to four per cent of children in the UK. 


I’ll continue working with colleagues across Parliament to press the Government to support a universal breakfast club offer for every child.
