Many students regularly skip breakfast/lunch due to not having the finance to afford breakfast. Studies have shown breakfast consumption has various positive outcomes as it has a big increase on positively effecting the learning performance for students. Students not only in our college but within the whole United Kingdom are facing this problem and it is still being discussed as a topic to tackle.


Throughout a student's college life, they can be seen trying to keep up their studies as best as they can with also managing and multitasking their everyday tasks. This affects the students highly as they may be unable to carry on with their day to day tasks, revision, exams and their relationships/friendships. However, this topic still needs to be discussed as this is something is affecting the students in our college and having a larger effect on the economy.

    Very good suggestion. It also applies to HE, and a Wales-wide investigation into food poverty - FE and HE - would be a very welcomed piece of work.
