Farmhouse Breakfast Week champions the importance of eating breakfast and aims to get the nation to shake up its wake up and incorporate breakfast into our routine. The campaign is organised on behalf of UK cereal farmers and producers, who grow and process foods used to make breakfast products.

New research conducted for Farmhouse Breakfast Week 2013 shows that nearly half of us (47%) skip breakfast at some point during the week and 15 per cent do not eat it at all! These figures are surprising, considering that scientific researchii,iii,iv has shown that eating breakfast can make you healthier and happier. We have a variety of reasons for why we skip our morning meal, which include not feeling hungry in the morning, preferring to stay in bed and not liking breakfast foods. For mums in particular, more than a third (39%) say getting other members of the family ready and household chores take priority over their first meal of the day.

Reasons to eat breakfast

  • Breakfast eaters tend to be slimmer than breakfast skippers.
  • Eating breakfast can aid concentration and mental performance at work and at school.
  • It provides you with the nutrients and energy needed for an active lifestyle.
  •  Research shows that breakfast eaters are less depressed and have lower levels of stress than breakfast skippers.For further information about Farmhouse Breakfast Week (20-26 January 2013):
