Over 500 children across Angus and Dundee enjoyed a real treat last week as a free, wholesome farmhouse breakfast was served up as part of the Royal Highland Education Trust’s (RHET) Angus Countryside Initiative.

Sponsored by Angus and Dundee City Councils along with Scotmid and many local suppliers, RHET and Scottish Women's Institute volunteers introduced the children to a wide variety of Scottish favourites including Aberfeldy oatmeal porridge, honey, locally made bread, fruit salad, Scottish cheese, soft fruit jams, oatcakes, yogurts and fruit & vegetable juice.

The breakfast initiative, started over ten years ago, has now seen every school in Angus take part in this tasty educational experience designed to help children learn more about Scottish farming, food and the countryside.

You can find out more about the work of RHET at the Royal Highland Education Trust website.
