Children at Ardler Primary School will be eating a healthy breakfast as part of a special farmhouse initiative on Friday (January 27).

The national farmhouse breakfast week is giving pupils the chance to sample a variety of healthy local breakfast options.

Across Angus and Dundee over 566 children are getting a visit from a team led by The Angus Countryside Initiative.

They will sample potato scones, donated by Goodfellows Cakes, along with other healthy Scottish foods including Aberfeldy Oatmeal Porridge, honey, locally made brown bread, granary and wholemeal rolls, fruit salad, soft fruit jams and many more.

Councillor Stewart Hunter, Children and Families Service Convener, said: “This is an inspiring programme and I am delighted that Dundee pupils will be able to benefit from it.

“I am also pleased that our local food sector, which is forging a real reputation for excellence, is able to raise its profile with young people in the city.”

The event’s regular sponsors, Angus Council, Dundee City Council, Goodfellows Cakes, Graham’s The Family Dairy, Instock, Mackays, Milton Haugh Farm Shop, Stirfresh, Strathmore Agribusiness, Tayside Contracts, Thomas Frost and Sons Bakers and W. N. Lindsay, are joined this year by Scotmid in supporting the events.  Along with the other sponsors, who either donate product or sponsor the purchasing of product, Scotmid have very kindly donated vouchers to allow ACI to buy goods for the event in local Scotmid stores and also several of their staff will be attending events near their stores to help serve the breakfasts alongside RHET ACI volunteers.  As always ladies from the SWI will be helping out each day, with 25 of their members organised to come along to help over the week.  In all 41 volunteers will be involved in delivering the initiative.
