You can’t beat a breakfast

The Harrogate office of at-home care provider, Home Instead Senior care has teamed up with local businesses this week (24th January) to provide a full farmhouse breakfast to their morning clients to support Farmhouse breakfast Week.

A team of their Caregivers delivered, cooked and served a full farmhouse breakfast for their morning clients who thoroughly enjoyed the special treat.

Commenting, owner of the Harrogate, Ripon & Thirsk office, Sheena Van Parys, said “A good nutritionally balanced meal at the start of the day gives us strength and energy to face the day and any challenges that may lie ahead.  It is especially important as we get older.“I would like to thank local food producer, Arthur Haigh, who kindly donated their famous 'Doreens' black pudding and Johnson's of Thirsk butchers for donating the sausages and bacon.  Their support is really appreciated.”

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is an annual campaign run by HGCA – (Home Grown Cereals Authority) which has been running since 2000. The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast. Overnight our energy stores are used up, so eating breakfast will top up the energy that has been used whilst sleeping and give us the energy needed to start the day.

A nutritious diet is essential for elderly health and with one in four people skipping breakfast Home instead want to help raise awareness of how important breakfast is in your diet.
