Byline: Chris Taylor

Breakfast of champions Pupils and teachers came together to start the day Top banana Eva Grant, 11, is ready to learn Paisley pupils were up and at'em after starting their day right learning about healthy breakfasts.

Todholm Primary staged a huge morning meal for around 500 youngsters.

They swapped stodge and sugary cereals for brain food to help kickoff lessons.

Principle teacher Claire Hall told how classes teamed-up with bosses at Keystore, in nearby Lochfield Road, for the special sit-down.

She said: "We joined forces with Avril Cole, who owns our local shop, for the morning.

"She donated enough healthy food for breakfasts for everybody and even enough to take away for another morning.

"The idea is to get the children interested in eating healthily at the start of each day.

"It helps them concentrate better in class and it's a good habit to develop.

"They were with their pals, so they were spurred on to try things that they might normally not.

"Avril brought a long a big team of volunteers to help out and get everybody going.

"We all went into lessons fuelled for the day ahead."

Pupils swapped sausages for slices of toast and banana and bacon for bowls of cereal.

They worked together to hand out fruit cups and make sure all the classes, from nursery to P7, were fed.
