"Pupils being held back by hunger http://gu.com/p/3tm3y/tf - tragic findings make Gove's comments this week look even more out of touch."Wondering how many pupils have died as a result of starvation (given her use of the word "tragic"), I clicked on the link which took me to a Guardian article about a survey commissioned by Kelloggs that seemingly identified that some school kids arrive at classes in the morning hungry.
It claims that 2.4 pupils in each class turn up for school at least once a week without having had breakfast, so are unable to concentrate.
The unsurprising "solution" proposed by Kelloggs (a manufacturer of breakfast cereals) was for there to be more breakfast clubs.
1 Nanny has been berating us for being overweight and for eating too much.
2 Cereals generally are loaded with sugar and other crapola, none of which are good for kids.
3 Missing a breakfast is not a tragedy, I rarely had breakfast before a schoolday and look what happened to me.
4 Kids are always hungry.
5 It is the role of the parents, not the state, to feed their offspring.
6 Ask a poverty stricken child (or his/her parents) in Africa what real hunger means and feels like!
