School breakfast clubs, social background and nutritional status.

Simpson, D. and Wattis, L. and Crow, R. and Summerbell, C.D. (2003) 'School breakfast clubs, social background and nutritional status.', Topic., 29 . pp. 1-3.

They are viewed as being able to make a positive contribution in terms of meeting the educational, care and health needs of children – particularly those in greatest need from poorer backgrounds.

Donald Simpson, Carolyn Summerbell, Robert Crow and Louise Wattis report on a study that evaluated the impact of two school breakfast clubs from a health perspective.
