Breakfast Club

Gladesville runs a School Breakfast Club 3 times per week. The program is ran by staff and volunteers each Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning before school from 8.20am until 8.50am. Students and their families are invited to come and enjoy breakfast before commencing in the big day ahead. The yummy menus change each term.

Breakfast is an important meal for adults and children!

Breakfast replenishes your glucose level. It provides essential vitamins and minerals to keep your energy levels up during the day.

Skipping Breakfast

Extensive research in Australia and overseas has found:

  • Many children who skip breakfast are significantly heavier than those who eat breakfast.
  • Skipping breakfast may diminish mental performance. Eating breakfast may aid learning, as you are better able to pay attention and are more interested in learning.
  • Eating high-fibre breakfast cereals reduces fatigue.
  • Children who eat an inadequate breakfast are more likely to make poor food choices for the rest of the day and in the long term.
  • People who eat breakfast have more nutritious diets than people who skip breakfast. They also have better eating habits as they are less likely to be hungry for snacks during the day.
  • Going without breakfast becomes more common with advancing age
