The third Friday in November is Slovenian Food Day. On this day, for the seventh year in a row, nurseries, schools and other institutions around the country will be offering a Traditional Slovenian Breakfast. The Traditional Slovenian Breakfast, which has grown into a national project, has brought together more than 260,000 children in nurseries and schools around Slovenia over a breakfast based on honey, butter and apples, and is already showing the first positive results. Growing numbers of children and adults are eating breakfast, there has been a significant decline in the consumption of sweet carbonated beverages, and we are eating more fruit and vegetables, say experts.

The aims of the Traditional Slovenian Breakfast and Slovenian Food Day are clear. We wish to revive the culture of eating breakfast and, above all, place an emphasis on local food. It is also positive that other countries in Europe are copying us with honey-based breakfasts and the promotion of local food. Even more important is the fact that positive changes are already occurring in people's eating habits, with an increasing number of people, both children and adults, eating breakfast. The Traditional Slovenian Breakfast project and Slovenian Food Day are thus important elements of the National Programme of Food and Physical Activity, which aims to improve the health of the entire population.
