Pupils in Splott, Cardiff like 'kick start' breakfasts

Children who eat a healthy breakfast are much more likely to do well in end of primary school assessments, according to new research.

It is the first time a direct link between pupils' breakfast quality and consumption and their educational attainment has been demonstrated.

The Cardiff University study asked 5,000 nine to 11-year-olds to list what they ate in 24 hours.

Those who ate breakfast did better in tests.

About 120 pupils regularly attend a breakfast club at Moorland Primary School in Splott, Cardiff.

A group of 10-year-old pupils gave their views, while head teacher Jane Jenkins said it gave them a great start to the day.
