Dr. Catherine Calderwood, Scotland's Chief Medical Officer 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.
