Welfare Foods – consultation on meeting needs of children and families in Scotland

OPFS submitted evidence to the Scottish Government consultation on ‘Welfare Foods – a consultation on meeting the needs of children and families in Scotland’. OPFS recognises that for many families headed by a single parent, maintaining a healthy diet is a daily financial challenge, particularly in the context of punitive UK welfare reform. There is strong evidence of the impact of diet in children’s early years. OPFS proposed that eligibility criteria to the suite of Best Start Benefits & Foods should be streamlined, with access to all being based on receipt of Universal Credit.
