That’s what this charity rep seems to be telling Reporting Scotland’ Connor Gillies. Gillies is already a master of reporting tales of economic hardship with diddley in the way of facts or context.
There is no mention of Brexit and the claims then of Conservatives that it would mean cheaper food.
Crucially there is no mention of Scottish Government efforts to moderate this crisis and the facts that demonstrate some success in that.
I repeat myself I know but just in case, see these:
Child poverty in Scotland is at half the rate of England. Why?
Two reasons. More affordable housing (https://www.jrf.org.uk/report/poverty-scotland-2021) and the Child Payment:
The Scottish Government’s decisive and compassionate move to bring in the new Scottish Child Payment is the lifeline children and their families need, and is a beacon of progressive policy for the rest of the UK.https://www.jrf.org.uk/blog/scottish-child-payment-will-turn-tide-child-poverty
What is the Child Payment, unique to Scotland?
Scottish Child Payment helps towards the costs of supporting your family. It’s a weekly payment of £20 that you can get for every child you look after who’s under 6 years of age. You’ll get the payment every 4 weeks if your application is successful.https://www.mygov.scot/scottish-child-payment#:~:text=Contents&text=Scottish%20Child%20Payment%20helps%20towards,if%20your%20application%20is%20successful.
