The law should be changed to give mothers paid breaks to breastfeed and facilities to feed and store milk, an all-party Parliamentary report has said.
The group also calls for a raft of guidance to be issued, to help parents, employers and schools to improve the health of children.
Parents should be told to ban televisions and mobile devices from their children’s bedrooms, the report says, and given guidance about just how much computer and TV screen time their children should have.
It also calls for a national anti-obesity strategy, new standards to ensure children spend enough time playing, and laws to improve the quality of food supplied in nurseries and other early years’ settings.
And a pony? Why leave out the pony?!
APPG chairman Baroness Floella Benjamin of Beckenham, said the report showed that Britain needed to invest in changes to support the early years of childhood.
She said: “Sometimes to save money – you have to spend first. For me, investing in our children isn’t a luxury – it’s a priority and I have dedicated my entire life to it.”
But…it’s not your money, is it? You should have stuck to ‘Play School’, it was about your level…
