Dartmouth cafe offers kids free pancakes or porridge for Breakfast Week

DARTMOUTH’S Cafe Alf Resco is taking part in the country’s biggest celebration of breakfast — and is encouraging local schoolchildren to join in.

To mark Breakfast Week, which runs from January 25 to 31, the cafe is encouraging children to start their day the right way with free porridge or pancakes.

A number of breakfast specials will also be on offer and free breakfast recipe booklets will be available to take home.

On Wednesday, January 28, Charles Baughan from Westaway Sausages will be cooking up a Free a Sausage Sizzle and Hogs Pudding Expose.

Attend between 7am and 9am and try different recipe hogs pudding. Everyone is welcome.

On Friday, January 30, Alf Resco will be heading across the river and serving pancakes with fruit toppings to promote the benefits of a healthy breakfast before school at the Kingswear Primary School Breakfast Club.

Breakfast Week is organised by HGCA, the cereals and oilseeds division of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board, on behalf of UK cereal farmers and producers. It aims to encourage people to recognise the health benefits of eating breakfast regularly.

Research shows that eating breakfast can give you more energy, help reduce stress levels, improve concentration, mood and may even help with weight management.

A survey conducted for Breakfast Week showed that a quarter of people skip breakfast at least once a week, while 13 per cent never eat it.

Cafe Alf Resco owner Kate Ryder said: “At Alf’s we recognise the importance of starting the day off right with a proper breakfast and are happy to offer breakfast to local school children before school during Breakfast Week.

“We are looking forward to Charles visiting and testing the palettes of Dartmouth to discover which hog pudding recipe is best in the eyes of Dartmouth because it is one of our most popular additions to our breakfast menu.”

Karen Levy from HGCA added: “We’re delighted that Cafe Alf Resco is helping spread the important message about eating breakfast by taking part in Breakfast Week.

“Every year the campaign is getting bigger and better.”
