Primary schoolchildren have been tucking into the most important meal day at the Lincolnshire Showground throughout this week.

The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society has joined the national campaign ‘Shake Up Your Wake Up’, encouraging kids to discover the importance of breakfast and celebrate the county’s produce.

The Lincolnshire Showground will be tucking into the most important meal of the day for Farmhouse Breakfast Week this month.

Key stage 2 pupils from Lacey Gardens Junior School in Louth have been taking part in smoothie making, seed planting, porridge making and a ‘meet the farmer’ event, where they speak to those who have grown the produce.

The annual Breakfast Week started on Sunday, January 24 and runs until Saturday, January 30.

Supporters of the event include Welbourne’s Bakery, Waitrose, Agrii, L J Fairburn & Son Ltd, Wooden Spoon and Whisk and Alford NFU.

Education and Development Officer, Rosie Crust, said: “As the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society we know how important it is to engage and educate the next generation on food, farming and the countryside, and we are working hard to ensure young people understand the link between agriculture and food – that’s why this campaign is something we are proud to be supporting fully.”
