Farmhouse Breakfast Week Emphasises Healthy Start for Students! 31 Oct
The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society (LAS) will be a hive of activity with 300 school children from Monday 6th – Friday 10th November 2023, to learn all about the farm to fork journey at the Farmhouse Breakfast Week event.
Each day the LAS will invite a school group of up to 60 Key Stage 2 students to the EXO Centre at the Lincolnshire Showground to learn all about the most important meal of the day – breakfast!
Students are encouraged to get hands on with lots of interactive, fun, farm-to-fork activities teaching them about the importance of a healthy breakfast whilst celebrating Lincolnshire’s finest produce. Using local, healthy ingredients to make wholesome breakfasts, learning the importance of starting the day fuelled with energy from a hearty breakfast.
Working in small groups, students will rotate around activities developing their cooking skills such as, omelette making, egg production process, healthy breakfast bowl and sausage muffin making. They also get an understanding of the farming story with activities to help educate where their breakfast comes from and the farming process.
Breakfast week is one of the many events we hold as part of our year-round programme, educating on the importance of food, farming and the environment.
Lincolnshire Agricultural Society’s Education Lead Suzy Stone said: “At the Society, we are really keen to promote the farming industry and believe in the importance of young people reconnecting with where their food comes from and the process from farm to fork ”
“We want to educate children about how important a healthy, balanced breakfast is, providing the fuel for learning. Breakfast can be a nutritious start to the day and is vital for good health.”
The LAS breakfast week will see some amazing local businesses get involved which include Ladies in Pigs, LCC Food Education, Ruth Wilkinson, Victoria Elwess from The Egg Stop at Heapham, The Chirpy Egg Company and a variety of local farmers and helpers who have kindly volunteered their time and resources for the event. We would also like to thank L J Fairburn & Sons Ltd, Sainsbury's and Lidl for their kind donations of eggs and food supplies to support our event.
