A survey undertaken to kick of National School Meals Week found that around 15 of female teens turning their back on a pre-school tum-filler, compared to 10.7 of kids go to school on an empty stomach.
The Local Authority Caterers Association commented on the findings saying: "With no breakfast, they can't be at their best for learning and so can be less attentive and a disruption in class."
Do you insist on your kids having breakfast every morning?
Or is it a battle with older kids and teens running late?
