Welfare Foods: consultation report

This consultation on meeting the needs of children and families in Scotland was published in April 2018 and invited views on our approach to Welfare Foods following the devolution through the Scotland Act 2016.

2. There were between one and three responses from each of: parent/carer organisations; childminder organisations; Community Planning Partnerships; teachers organisations; academic or research institutes; childcare providers; and other public body.

3. Question 10 did not ask for agreement or disagreement – it was a 'how' question – but agreement/disagreement was often expressed in the responses, so it was possible to quantify it anyway. However, the number of unclear responses is higher for this question, as can be expected.
