It’s not Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but it is breakfast in the school library—food for thought. The menu is mono-focussed in being Weetbix and milk. The Weetbix variations only relate to All Black packaging or alternatives. The milk does not come as trim, calcium enhanced or organically produced from goats.
The numbers of punters vary between 5 and 12 in the time available for the activity. There are no table monitors, table napkins or reflective readings, but just this geriatric paediatrician observing the consumptive patterns of the attendees. I can report that the average uptake is 3 Weetbix per child but that the course record on my watch was 10.5 Weetbix consumed with élan and satisfaction.
There is no entry screening as to who can come. There are regular and irregular attendees on my Monday morning round. I have not received any scientific reports from the friendly teaching staff as to whether enhanced levels of alertness are visible in attendees but that the attendees consume with satisfaction seems positive in the mobility patterns observed as they leave the library.
My dish washing and dish marshalling experiences in working with my own children seemed helpful. The only tensions requiring diplomacy skills have arisen in treasure hunts for All Black Cards in the Weetbix boxes. All in all, a pleasurable experience and I suggest a sound nutritious option.
