The BIG Eggsellent Breakfast - tackling child obesity for a healthier future
Leading on from the success of Eggsellent Breakfasts Initiative,, West Cork Eggs & Alison Health are gearing up for their BIGGEST breakfast yet!

Child obesity in Ireland is at epidemic levels with 1 in 10 children classified as obese. Processed sugars often hidden in foods children consume has proved to be one of the major causes. Long term obesity is linked with the development in later life of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and digestive issues. But making a difference is as easy as changing just one thing, like choosing EGGS: a quick, versatile, accessible and affordable naturally complete whole food.
Since launching Eggsellent Breakfasts in May 2017, Kate Ryan of, Caroline Murphy of West Cork Eggs and Alison Kingston of Alison Health have reached 1,500 children in schools across West Cork to encourage choosing a delicious and nutritionally balanced breakfast a few mornings a week using EGGS!
Kate Ryan of said, “The response to our Eggsellent Breakfasts initiative at schools across the West Cork region has been phenomenal! Children love it and we receive amazing feedback from the schools we visit. We cut away the confusion around making healthier food choices so it’s easier for children to eat a balance and nutritious breakfast every day. By focusing only on eggs, the message is clear: an egg contains everything their body needs - protein, good fats and 13 different vitamins and minerals.”
Caroline Murphy (pictured) of West Cork Eggs said, “As a mother of four, it’s very important for me that my children eat well. I believe that Eggsellent Breakfasts is a fun and interactive way to educate children about the importance of eating a healthy balanced breakfast.”
Alison Kingston of Alison Health said, “Children are so busy growing, learning and taking part in sports and after school activities it is essential that they start their day right. Eggs are natures wholefood and a versatile, accessible and value for money source of natural wholesome food – in a word, Eggsellent!”
