Minister says kids skip breakfast because they want to stay trim
Being trim may be a challenge for Minister of Eating Pies, Parekura Horomia, but in parliament today he was asked why 20,000 children a week needed feeding at school because they don't have breadfast. Horomia said this
Hon PAREKURA HOROMIA: There are a host of reasons why students and pupils do not have breakfast. They are trying to stay trim, or else there may be poverty in the house.
One wonders why a kid would not have breakfast at home because he or she wants to stay trim, only to have it at school instead.
