Children's Future Food Inquiry

Date: 7th November 2018
Category: Child poverty


The Children’s Future Food Inquiry is gathering evidence, experience and/or case studies about children’s experiences of food and how it affects their lives in order to inform and shape its recommendations. The Inquiry will focus on children under 18 years old in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland; and is spearheaded by a cross-party parliamentary group.

They are interested in hearing from anyone who would like to share with the Inquiry committee including teachers, healthcare professionals, parents, older siblings, carers or those who have known or observed children with compromised access to nutritious diets or experiences of food insecurity*. The Inquiry will also be consulting children and young people directly about their experiences. If you are a Young Scot Rewards member you can collect 50 points for completing this survey. Your points code is: XYRDPB.

Submissions can be received until the end of November 2018.  There are a series of questions to help guide your submission, or you are free to submit short films, photographs, personal stories, reports and data.

Should you have any questions or if you would like to complete the questions in another language, you can contact the Food Foundation.

* “Food insecurity” is defined as the inability to acquire or consume an adequate quality or sufficient quantity of food in socially acceptable ways, or the uncertainty that one will be able to do so.
