Child hunger having dramatic effect at London schools

A new report released today reveals that child hunger and poverty in London are dramatically affecting children's ability to learn.

More than 80 percent of teachers in London say that children are eating the wrong foods in the morning, and most say they can tell just by watching their behaviour at school.

The report, by charity Magic Breakfast, is part of the 'Feed Their Future' campaign, which aims to raise awareness of the impact of child hunger on education.
