kids going hungry
So, up to 80,000 kids are going hungry every morning and not eating breakfast before school, according to the Ministry of Health - and most of them are from poorer families who collect Family Support to feed their kids.
Guess what Working for Families money is paid on - its not the kids clothes and food, its the power bill, the cafe meals, the playstation and the plasma TV - and an extra bottle of booze a week.
Perhaps all the parents who are not feeding their kids can be docked some Family Support payments - a bit like a solo mum being docked some of her benefit for not naming the father.
I should note that my kids have breakfast every morning.
