Breakfast Can’t Wait

Home > Get involved > Campaigns > Breakfast Can’t Wait

Two years ago, the Scottish Government promised to deliver breakfast to children and young people in all primary and special schools.  

Since then, the Government has chosen not to serve a single slice of toast, piece of fruit or bowl of porridge to children at risk of morning hunger.   By failing to deliver on their promise, they are failing Scottish children. 

Breakfast can’t wait any longer. Scottish children can’t wait any longer.  

We are calling on the First Minister, Humza Yousaf, to fulfil his Government’s promise to hungry children, help bring an end to morning hunger and give Scottish children a chance to learn, grow and thrive. Read our open letter.

Support our campaign by spreading the word!

To read more about our previous campaign activity you can catch up via our blogs: An eventful few months for Magic Breakfast in Scotland! and read our response to the Scottish Government’s disappointing announcement in the 2023 Programme for Government here: Magic Breakfast’s Response to Scottish Government Programme for Government.

Scottish film and television actor James Cosmo backed Breakfast Can’t Wait and called on the First Minister to put breakfast on the table.
