Healthy Breakfasts-3rd Years

Third years prepared healthy school breakfasts this morning- Overnight oats- rich in calcium for healthy bone development  and high in fibre to help prevent bowel disorders. Followed by French toast and Fresh Berries-  we used brown bread to increase the fibre content and served with strawberries and raspberries to add vitamin C, which is really important at this time of year for general health.
