Pod Bites: 900,000 missing out on Free School Meals

How can we expect children to do well in school if we don't give them the food they need to concentrate and focus on their learning?

Kate Anstey, head of education policy at Child Poverty Action Group, ponders this as she reveals updated figures show 900,000 children living in poverty in England are missing out on Free School Meals.

She explores the impact of this on children and their families and what should happen next.
