The scheme is being run nationwide and aims to raise awareness of the health and nutritional benefits of eating a good breakfast every morning.

The school took the idea one step further so that students could learn how people from across the globe prepare their morning meals.

Jayne Mackay, head of food technology, said: “Juniors in Years 6 and 7 got the chance to sample a wide variety of foods, including American waffles, tortillas from Mexico, Spanish churos and Dutch cheese and ham on bread.

“Over in King’s Ely Senior, students had their breakfast prepared for them by their peers in King’s Ely International, giving them the chance to not only try traditional breakfasts from around the world but to learn how to create them.

“Students cooked up interesting breakfasts from their countries of origin, such as Chinese noodles, Russian pancakes, and Canadian scones with maple syrup – a recipe which was passed down from the student’s mother.”
