Children Bearing Brunt Of Recession

Children are bearing the brunt of the recession, according to a charity.

One in six youngsters from struggling families are going to bed hungry.

Around three-fifths of the poorest families in Scotland have had to cut the amount they spend on food in the last year, research from Save the Children reveals.

Save the Children said witnessing the financial worries of their parents could place an impossible burden on children.

One 11-year-old, identified only as Duncan, told researchers: ``My mum makes sacrifices so that I can do the hobbies I want to do to keep me off the streets. She cuts back on buying herself new shoes and clothes.''
