Abstract

Disaster and emergency situations – floods, fires, terrorist attacks and widespread power failures – can affect any country, including the UK. In any disaster or emergency, babies are vulnerable and continued access to adequate and safe nutrition is essential. Families need support to ensure that children continue to be cared for and fed in line with their needs. Heather Trickey and Helen Gray argue that there is an urgent need to develop national guidance on the care of infants or young children in case of emergency. UK governments need to ensure infant and child nutrition is protected as part of the planned new strategy for resilience in major disasters.
