Parents going hungry! – to help feed their children

THE parents of Britain’s poorest children are going hungry so that their children have some food on the table.

Both parents and children are missing regular hot meals, unable to afford warm coats and new shoes and suffering enormous emotional strain, according to a new report from the Child Poverty Action Group.

Child Poverty 2012: It Shouldn’t Happen Here‘ reveals the extent to which poverty is blighting young lives.

I’m curious what readers had for breakfast today. Please tell.

Let’s get together and make an equitable world…
