Abstract
This article gives an account of the setting up of a breakfast club at a school for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties. The aim of the breakfast club was twofold: firstly, to improve the nutrition of students from areas of social deprivation, many of whom are also receiving medication for ADD/ADHD, known to suppress appetite and which can have effects on growth; and secondly, to improve the ethos of the school and enhance the social skills of students.
