Save the Children and Food for Thought

As you know we love reading and always try to find some time during the day to read to our children. We are lucky enough to have access to a great variety of books, be it from our own collection or from our local library. We take it for granted to have food, a comfortable house and feel secure.However there are many children in the world sadly do not have these opportunities.

Save The Children has just published a Food for Thought Report.25% of the world’s children are malnourished and that makes then 20% less able to read which leads to earning less in the future and therefore not being able to support their own children forming a vicious circle.
It’s time to take action and support Food for Thought – many outstanding children’s author’s are taking action with an open letter to the G8 leaders including Julia Donaldson, Eric Carle and Philip Pullman. Ahead of G8 the UK will be hosting a nutrition summit in London in June we are asking you to join Save the Children and highlight this issue.
This report will form part of the IF campaign where over 170 charities have joined together to call for the G8 to take action on World Hunger.  Did you know that the world already produces enough food for everyone?  That is why world hunger is such a scandal.
If you want to make a difference to this world crisis, sign the IF petition now.
