Everyone Deserves a Proper Breakfast

A bowl for a bowl with Magic Breakfast

It is a very sad fact that 1 in 3 children in England go to school without breakfast. And another sad fact, that for 1 in 4 children, their school lunch is the only cooked meal they eat in a day.

For four years now, we have been working with the charity Magic Breakfast to help change these numbers.

Magic Breakfast works with schools in deprived areas to ensure that children who need it the most will get breakfast before going to school. They provide porridge, bagels, toast and cereal – and the kids can then start their learning with full tummies. Because how can you learn anything when your tummy rumbles?

 

So how can you help?

Paradoxically, by having breakfast. For each bowl of porridge we sell, one is donated by Magic Breakfast to a child who might otherwise go without. So that’s breakfast for you, and for a child in need. It means you can start your day well and make sure someone else’s day starts well, too.

Think porridge is boring? Well, you haven’t had it properly then. We make ours with a mix of oat and rye and serve it topped with your choice of the following (or plain, if you prefer a more humble start to your day);

  • Apple, cinnamon and vanilla with rye crunch and A-fil (Swedish natural yoghurt)
  • Blueberry compote, coconut granola and banana (the granola is homemade and may be our new favourite thing)
  • Cherry sauce and toasted almonds (think of it as Ris a’la Mande in breakfast form. Oh yes)
  • Fresh stirred lingonberries, orange blossom and pumpkin seeds (sweet, tart and crunchy)

Next time you pop by, come for breakfast. Every little helps – and every bowl means one less child has to go to school hungry.

Thank you for your support in this – make sure to head over to Magic Breakfast if you want to learn more.

Don’t go to school on an empty stomach

Magic Breakfast Charity – Start your day doing something good

Don’t go to school on an empty stomach.

It’s a very sad fact that 1 in 3 children in England go to school without having eaten breakfast. Even worse, that for one in four kids, the school meal at lunch is the only proper cooked meal they will have that day. Yes, you read that correctly.

The charity Magic Breakfast works with schools in deprived areas to ensure that children who most need it will get breakfast before the school day start. They provide porridge, bagels, toast and cereal – and the kids can then start their learning with full tummies. Because how can you learn anything when your tummy rumbles?

We are proud to announce that from this Saturday, we start working with Magic Breakfast:

Every time you buy a bowl of porridge at our place, we will donate one breakfast to a child via Magic Breakfast.

Just like that. A bowl for bowl.

So, when your mother told you porridge was good for you, well, little did she know it was also going to be good for someone else, too.

We’re expecting you all to pop by for our delicious oat and rye porridge with lovely toppings, such as nuts, seeds, fruit, honey, cinnamon – or maybe try Guest Porridge with raw-stirred Swedish lingonberries and pumpkin seeds.

We hope to make a long term working relationship with Magic Breakfast and we really want to continue supporting them as much as we can. So pop by and eat porridge at ours and feel full and happy in the knowledge that someone else will be, too.
