I opened the newspaper recently to read that the United Nations has criticised the UK for its failure to reduce inequality among children. The UN reports that rich children in Britain eat more fruit and vegetables and take more exercise than poor children. From infancy, the rich children are already on a life trajectory that will confer on them better physical and mental health for more years than their less privileged peers born at the same time.
