KickStart Breakfast helps more children achieve their best by getting a kickstart to their day. Fueled by milk and grains, the students experience the power of a nutritious breakfast to provide both strength and energy for maximum learning at school.

KickStart Breakfast is the only school breakfast programme of its kind within New Zealand. We work together with local school communities to provide healthy breakfasts to children. Alongside support from the New Zealand Government, Sanitarium provides the Weet-BixFonterra provides the Anchor milk and it’s the school that is responsible for delivering the programme.

Breakfast clubs are about more than eating breakfast at school. The engaging environment encourages students to develop social skills, take on extra responsibility and grow academically through the wider benefits of breakfast.
