YMCA Charity Golf Day
Benefiting the YMCA Schools' Breakfast Program
"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet one in six Queensland kids don’t get breakfast at home" – ABS, 2013
Children who don’t eat breakfast are disadvantaged by hunger and poor nutrition. In the short term, these children don’t pay attention and therefore don’t learn as well as others during class. In the long term, they don’t reach their academic potential which increases the risk of poor employment outcomes. Additionally, children who skip breakfast have lower nutrient intakes and are also more likely to be have an unhealthy BMI.
