We spoke for about half an hour.
Doctors fear the pair may never recover, while the first police officer on the scene, DS Nick Bailey, has been released from hospital after coming into contact with the nerve agent.
Mr Skripal, 66, is thought to have given the children - all boys - the bread to throw into the river in Avon Playground, but one of the boys ate the slice handed to him.
Moscow has repeatedly denied responsibility for the March 4 attack on 66-year-old Mr Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, 33.
The Porton Down chief executive, Gary Aitkenhead, told the BBC: "We have got the highest levels of controls, of security, around the work that we do here".
It comes as EU leaders promised further, coordinated action against Russian Federation in response to the attack, endorsing a warning from Prime Minister Theresa May that the poisoning represented a challenge to shared European values.
The bench the Skripals were sitting on when they were found unconscious in Salisbury on 4 March has been removed by a team in protective suits, as the investigation continues. Later, the European Union chose to withdraw its ambassador from Russian Federation for consultations. The UK side claimed it was a Novichok-type nerve agent, which was developed in the Soviet Union.

He said Skripal told him that "he wrote to Vladimir Putin asking to be fully pardoned and to be allowed to visit Russian Federation". He called me from London.
Skripal was accused of working for MI6 over several years, in particular disclosing the names of several dozen Russian agents working in Europe.
He also asked to be allowed to return to Russian Federation because he wanted to see his mother, brother and other relatives. His classmates felt he had betrayed the Motherland.
Russia's ambassador to the United Kingdom sent his well wishes to Mrs Skripal and his daughter on Friday, saying he hoped for their recovery.
Mr Bailey said his experience had been "completely surreal" after he was discharged from hospital.
"She does wonder if she should have gone to the police but decided not to, as so few people know she even knew him", a mutual friend of Skripal and the woman was quoted as saying by The Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
