As the media continues to smear Corbyn, Tory cuts continue to destroy children’s lives

Smears against Jeremy Corbyn have dominated the UK media for weeks. Yet away from these headlines, Tory cuts have continued to affect and destroy children’s lives. Rising numbers of UK children now live in poverty and don’t have access to secure housing or food – let alone healthy food. Children are going hungry. And as term begins, some schools can’t open every day because of financial cuts.
Food on the table?

A new report from the independent thinktank Food Foundation found that 3.7 million children in the UK live in households that earn less than £15,860. As a result, these families are “unable to afford a healthy diet”. The report relates to official government nutritional guidelines.

Anna Taylor, executive director of the Food Foundation said:

The Government’s measurement of household income highlights the fact that millions of families in the UK cannot afford to eat in line with the Government’s own dietary guidance.

In fact, the report found that access to a healthy diet was out of reach for half of all UK households. And the poorest 20% would need to spend 42% of their income (after housing) to afford a healthy diet. As the Food Foundation noted, these findings draw attention to widening inequality in the UK. It also shows that the poorest children are most at risk of potential obesity, diabetes and malnutrition.

and Vegetables are expensive and go rotten far to quick.
Welcome to Tory Britain, only the rich can stay here. :angry:
