31st October 2011, Comments 0 comments

About half a million children at 2,500 Dutch primary schools will have breakfast together this week. National School Breakfast Week is intended to focus attention on the importance of a proper breakfast to young children.

The week will officially start in Corpus on Monday morning. Corpus is an attraction in the town of Oegstgeest where visitors can ‘travel’ through the human body. About 80 schoolchildren will have breakfast with athletes Marijn de Vries cycling and Barbara de Loor former speed skater.

On Wednesday in The Hague, a number of politicians will show about 60 schoolchildren how it’s done. Health Minister Edith Schippers and Parliamentary Speaker Gerdi Verbeet will be eating their sandwiches together with the children.
