Blackpool School Breakfast Scheme

In 2013, Professor Greta Defeyter and Pamela Graham carried out an evaluation of Blackpool Council’s Free School Breakfast Scheme pilot.

Findings from the evaluation have since been presented by Professor Defeyter at Westminster and by Pamela Graham at the Food, Children and Youth Conference in Lisbon, Portugal.

Following the results of the evaluation, the free school breakfast scheme was rolled out across all primary schools in Blackpool, so all children of primary school age are entitled to receive a free breakfast at the start of each school day.

Louise Harvey-Golding, a postgraduate researcher in Healthy Living, is carrying out an evaluation of the current breakfast scheme under the supervision of Professor Defeyter.
