"The charity Save the Children, best known for international poverty relief, says the UK's poorest children are bearing the brunt of the recession, with some missing out on regular hot meals, new shoes or warm clothes.
BBC Newsnight has spoken to one eight-year-old girl about her experiences of poverty, which sees her mother skipping meals to ensure that the children eat.
In order to protect the girl's identity her words have been voiced by an actor.
This film was broadcast during Newsnight on Wednesday 5 September 2012 at 10.30pm on BBC Two".

"Nepal is one of the hilliest countries in the world. The Nepalese people say that if it was flat it would be almost the same size as the USA!
Most of the population live in remote areas, hours from the nearest town or shop so many grow their own food. But growing enough to live on is a real challenge.
Ben Thompson travelled to the western Nepal with World Class to find out what life is like for young people, and why school lunches make a huge difference to these children's futures".
