Local school kids enjoyed a free healthy breakfast at top heights of 115 metres at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park last week.
Children from Chisenhale Primary School in Bow were treated to a healthy breakfast at the top of the ArcelorMittal Orbit with Olympian Peter Waterfield.
The exclusive breakfast club, courtesy of the Mayor’s Fund for London, is part of ‘London’s Biggest Breakfast’ campaign to put more Breakfast Clubs in London’s primary schools.
Olympic Diver and Silver Medalist, Peter Waterfield said: “I think Breakfast Clubs are a great help to children who don’t eat breakfast before school.
“They set kids up for a more fun and productive day ahead.”
According to the Mayor’s Fund for London, one in three London primary school children regularly miss their breakfast.
Helen James, Head Teacher of Chisenhale Primary School said: “We’re delighted with Peter Waterfield’s support.

“The children feel like celebrities which is an important boost for the club.”
Ten more schools are benefitting from Breakfast Clubs, thanks to the success of last year’s campaign. Working in partnership with Magic Breakfast and the Greggs Foundation, the Mayor’s Fund for London Breakfast Club Programme will reach 2,500 children in 60 London schools.
The aim is to see children from the most deprived areas start the day with a free healthy breakfast so they’re ready to learn.
