Welsh breakfast was top of the menu  for pupils at Pennant Primary School, Penybontfawr, where a special event was held by NFU Cymru to help celebrate the most important meal of the day.
School cook Rhian Williams who has been running the school breakfast for the last two years prepared a Welsh breakfast for the pupils using locally supplied produce.
Anwen Watkins, Head Teacher at Ysgol Pennant Primary School said, “Our breakfast club, which has been running for several years, prides itself on its links with the local community. Every day we serve our pupils a healthy breakfast, which really sets them up for the day. We source as much as possible from local suppliers.

!"The breakfast club provides a safe, social and educational activity for the children, whilst benefiting their behaviour and concentration levels for the rest of the day, which is just one of the reasons it continues to grow term on term.
“Ysgol Pennant Primary School was proud of having the opportunity to work with NFU Cymru to raise the awareness of the importance of eating breakfast. The competition was also an opportunity for us to see what pupils knew about the health benefits of eating breakfast.”
Wyn Jenkins, local NFU Cymru Group Secretary said, “NFU Cymru is pleased, once again, to support Farmhouse Breakfast Week and to help people recognise the importance of eating what’s considered to be the most important meal of the day.”          
The main focal point of the morning was announcing the winners of two competitions. The first, asked key stage one pupils to draw their favourite breakfast and Elin Fflur Lloyd Davies, won over the judges with a poster of her favourite breakfast. Pupils in key stage two were asked to write a healthy breakfast menu and Ruth Jones pleased the judges with her entry.
Mr Jenkins ended, “NFU Cymru agreed that Ysgol Pennant Primary School was an excellent example of a successful school breakfast club. This was a joint effort between NFU Cymru and a local school to promote the importance of the farming industry and to show the superb quality of breakfast produce from the locality and to highlight the importance of buying local food.”
