star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to addressing food insecurity, particularly for children. Our eligibility criteria for free school meals support children from the most disadvantaged backgrounds by providing a free and healthy school meal each day. Including food insecurity in the National Curriculum is a recommendation arising from the Children’s Future Food Inquiry. We welcome this report and will reflect carefully on it over the coming months and consider how we can best respond to the important issues raised.</p><p> </p><p>The National Curriculum on design and technology in secondary schools covers cooking, emphasising the importance of this as a crucial life skill that enables pupils to feed themselves and others affordably and well. The National Curriculum for citizenship in secondary schools sets out that teaching should prepare pupils to manage their money well, make sound financial decisions, and plan for future financial needs. From primary school through to secondary, the mathematics National Curriculum covers money and how mathematics is necessary for financial literacy.</p>

star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to helping families into work, as the best route out of poverty. We are also supporting over 1 million children with free school meals, investing up to £26 million in school breakfast clubs, providing approximately 2.3 million children aged 4-6 with a portion of fresh fruit or vegetables each day at school, and, through the Healthy Start Programme, hundreds of thousands of low income families benefit from vouchers which can be redeemed against fruit, vegetables, milk and infant formula. In 2019/20, the government will be spending more than £95 billion a year on working-age benefits. The new set of food insecurity questions introduced into the existing Family Resources Survey from April will build a better understanding of household food needs, to help ensure we’re targeting support to those most in need.</p> more like this
