Our children are our future, so we must give them the best possible start in life.

One of our top priorities is to bring Kiwi kids out of poverty. Read our detailed plan to achieve this.

If we keep our children safe and guarantee them the essentials - like a warm, dry home, food to grow healthy and strong, loving care, and a quality education - we guarantee their opportunities for life.

Too many kids in New Zealand don't have access to the essentials, and this hurts their health and their chances later in life. The first step to supporting these kids is to help their families cope financially and enable their parents to spend time with their children.

Feed the kids Bill

Education is the best route out of poverty. But hungry kids can't learn and are left trapped in the poverty cycle. Let's break that cycle lunchbox by lunchbox. We can feed the country's hungry kids, if we work together.

Please help this happen by emailing John Key, asking that National support my Bill at least to Select Committee.
