A new report released today reveals that child hunger and poverty in London are dramatically affecting children's ability to learn.
More than 80 percent of teachers in London say that children are eating the wrong foods in the morning, and most say they can tell just by watching their behaviour at school.
The report, by charity Magic Breakfast, is part of the 'Feed Their Future' campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the impact of child hunger on education.
It also found:
- Over a quarter of London teachers do not believe parents can identify what a nutritious breakfast is
- Nearly 60% of children also do not know what a nutritious breakfast is
- 23% of parents living in the city say that food is getting so expensive they have had to cut down on breakfasts
- Up to 60% of parents let their children eat anything in the morning, just so they eat something
