Father's Day Breakfast

Spoil Dad with a delicious Father’s Day breakfast

Father’s Day is all about looking after Dads, Grandads and other important people in our lives. What better way to do that than by sharing a delicious hearty breakfast?  But before you get out the sausages and bacon, why not think about making Dad feel special with some ‘everyday' foods that will get him feeling nourished and energised.

For schools and services putting on a Father’s Day breakfast, try the following ideas:
