Nourish Scotland was commissioned by the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland to listen to what children think about food insecurity.
We listened to 32 children across Renfrewshire, Dundee, Glasgow and Edinburgh talking about the causes, coping mechanisms, and solutions to food insecurity.
Key findings The greatest insight of this research is of children’s desire and ability to solve the challenges they see in the world around them. This raises a number of questions about the adequacy of provision for the inclusion of children in public decision-making more generally. Further valuable research in this area would be to support co-designing forums with children for their effective participation. A key final reflection for readers is how in our communities and organisations we could create spaces for listening to children and acting on what they tell us.
