Mark McDonald interview - Scotland’s Baby Box available nationwide
Mark McDonald Minister for Childcare and Early is interviewed about the delivery of the Baby Box.
All babies in Scotland due from tomorrow (15 August) will be gifted a Box full of essential items aimed at tackling inequality and promoting health. The boxes are a strong signal of the Scottish Government’s determination that every child, regardless of their circumstances should get the best start in life.
Each Baby Box contains a large number of items which are not only practical but designed to help tackle inequality and improve health. The Box itself also doubles up as a safe sleep space, awarded British Safety standard accreditation as a crib for domestic use.
