Record numbers of baby boxes delivered in Fife


Categories: News

Jenny Gilruth, MSP for Mid Fife and Glenrothes, has welcomed news that 18,879 baby boxes have been delivered to support families across Fife.

This comes as new figures show that over 292,000 baby boxes have been delivered to expectant parents across Scotland – providing them with around £420 worth of essential items for their newborn. 

The SNP Scottish Government is committed to supporting Scotland’s young people from birth to ensure that they have a secure and healthy start in life – a policy which is having a significant positive influence on the health outcomes of Scottish infants.

Commenting, Jenny Gilruth MSP said:

“I am delighted that almost 19,000 baby boxes have now been delivered to support expectant parents across the Kingdom.

“Recent analysis has shown that the Scottish Government’s approach to supporting infants and young people is having significantly positive health outcomes – and the baby box is helping contribute to that.

“It is also one of the key actions from the Scottish Government which is ensuring that 100,000 children are lifted out of poverty this year.

“I am proud that this Government ensures every child has the nurturing care they need to have the best start in life and to fulfil their potential as we continue to prioritise reducing levels of child poverty.”
