Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


After being popular across other countries for many years, the number of school breakfast clubs in the UK has expanded
dramatically since the late 1990s. They are viewed as being able to make a positive contribution in terms of meeting the
educational, care and health needs of children – particularly those in greatest need from poorer backgrounds. But research
in this country on the effectiveness of school breakfast provision remains limited and largely anecdotal. The authors report on a study that evaluated the impact of two school breakfast clubs from a health perspective.
