Captain Pantástico has returned to the road this Monday 25 April 2022 to highlight the many positive effects of bread consumption among children aged 6 to 12 years old in the main cities of Spain, an action that is part of the campaign "Good morning with Bread from Europe!", carried out by the Interprofessional Organisation of Bread Cereals and Derivatives (INCERHPAN) with the collaboration of the European Union. The surroundings of the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas (Madrid) have witnessed this new journey of the superhero and his bread bus, which has a "bread library" with the varieties made in our country, a work table with toppings and interactive games, as well as ovens for baking bread; delighting the schoolchildren who have come, accompanied by their teachers, to the fun and educational day.
