It is often referred to as the most important meal of the day, particularly for students as they embark on a number of important exams.
And now, schoolchildren across the area can make the most of some tasty breakfast treats – thanks to a kind donation from a new charity project.
The initiative, run by charity His Church, is called 'Team Up To Be Champions, School Breakfasts for Winners'.
It aims to improve educational attainment, attendance and social inclusion through the provision of healthy, good quality breakfast cereal to school breakfast clubs.
Ormiston Denes Academy were approached by the charity after they received a significant donation of Kellogg's breakfast cereal last year for their daily breakfast club – which students attend free of charge.

On that occasion, they received 16 cases of cereal as part of the Give a Child a Breakfast Campaign.
This time around, the high school on Yarmouth Road was the host venue to distribute the latest donation to ten primary schools across the area.

Some of the schools that benefitted – just in time for exam season – were Beccles Primary School, Red Oak Primary School and Harbour PRU – along with other organisations, including Access Community Trust.
The cereal, consisting of Kellogg's Rice Krispies and Cornflakes, was accompanied by newly added breakfast packs – containing a variety of tasty and tempting breakfast items.
Julie Durrant, marketing and communications officer at Ormiston Denes Academy, said: 'It was a pleasure to host this extremely generous project.
'Representatives from our local schools were very appreciative and keen to take part in a much larger event planned for later in the year.'
