New research by Ipsos Mori for UNICEF UK has shown that children in the UK feel trapped in a "materialistic culture" and don't have enough time with their families.

Following on from UNICEF's pioneering report in 2007, which ranked the UK bottom in child well-being compared to other industrialised nations, the research gives an in-depth comparison of over 250 children's experiences across three developed countries: the UK, Sweden and Spain.
