Harry and Stanley are taking their breakfast. An Englishman usually begins with fruit. Than he has porridge with milk and sugar. He likes bacon very much and so, after porridge, he often takes bacon and eggs. He does not eat much bread but many warm brown toasts with butter and orange marmalade. You may have no bacon, no porridge, but when there is no marmalade it is not a good English breakfast! Some English people drink coffee, some tea. In Poland we don't like porridge. We usually take bread, white or brown, or rolls with butter. Some people like cheese or boiled eggs, soft and hard. We usually drink coffee. I drink mine with milk. English people drink tea and coffee from cups; in Poland many people drink tea from glasses. Their tea is very strong and dark brown when it is Indian, or light green when it is China; ours is light brown. They drink it with plenty of milk and sugar.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away,

British supermarkets sell food from all over the world. butter comes from New Zeland, and apples com from Australia. Beef comes from Argentina, and mangoes come from Brazil. They all come by sea. In Britain local asparagus is in the shops in May and June, but nowadays people want fresh asparagus all through the year. So Britain imports asparagus by air from Peru, Mexico, and Thailand. Fresh fish comes to Britain from Sri Lanka, Alaska, and Ecuador. vegetables come from Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Kenya in East Africa. Grapes come from South Africa. Ecologists measure 'air miles': the distance food travels by air from the producer to the shop. Because transport by air uses fuel, they say that 'air miles' food is bad for the enviroment.

Researchers have found the wold's oldest example of bread. The breadcrumbs were charred and burnt, which is how they survived for so long. Humans were making bread 4,000 years earlier than scientists thought. The people who baked the bread lived in Jordan from around 12,500 to 9,500 B.C.They were hunter-gatherers and lived thousands of years before humans settled down to become farmers. The researchers analyzed them and found they were made from cereal plants. Lead researcher, Dr Amaia Otaegui, sad the bread took a long time to make. The ancient Jordanians then mixed the flour with water to make dough. Another researchers said the bread could be one reason for the agricultural revolution. Stone Age people ralized it was easier and more convenient.
