Nearly three out of every four children are being negatively affected by the cost of living crisis.
A study by the children's charity Barnardos found 37 per cent of families have had to cut down or do without basic essentials in the past six months.
43 percent of parents couldn't afford to buy new clothes for their kids.
Seven in ten say they "sometimes or always" worry about being unable to provide their children with food, heat or electricity.
Stephen Moffat, National Policy Manager with Barnardos, says more families are facing hardship.
