The health of our future nation starts with the health and wellbeing of our children.
We support measures to improve and reduce early life inequality through initiatives such as the Baby Box, breast feeding encouragement and the Best-Start funding being made available to low-income families.
We encourage measures to increase funding for free childcare and the provisions of healthy and nutritionally balanced free school meals.
We want to see increased funding for primary care health visitors, who provide a wealth of health education and child-health support to parents and guardians.
We want councils to be encourages to provide safe and accessible areas for sports and recreation for children and young adults, to encourage healthy activity and improve health and wellbeing.
