The Government has defended its record on child poverty.
We are tackling child poverty by extending free early education, investing to help families with childcare costs and introducing universal credit which will lift hundreds of thousands of people out of poverty.
Work is the best route out of poverty which is why the Work Programme will ensure that people receive the personalised support they need.
All children from the poorest families are entitled to receive a free hot meal at school every day. We have launched a review to make sure that healthy and nutritious school food is available to all children.
