A new inquiry which aims to understand children's experiences of food and how it affects their lives has been launched under the leadership of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Hunger and Food Poverty.

The inquiry will hear directly from children, young people and those that live and work with them. It will focus on children and young people under 18 years of age in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Evidence collected from the inquiry will be used to develop a series of recommendation for action from government and other policy makers.

The inquiry is looking for evidence from anyone with experiences, evidence or case studies including teachers, healthcare professionals, parents, siblings, or carers. Submissions to the inquiry are welcome in a variety of formats including short films, photographs, stories, reports and data. The inquiry will be open for submissions until the end of September.
