Or you can make the money go further , not everyone has a basic level of cooking skills.

Maybe she shouldn't have bothered or maybe it would have been more accepted by some if those points raised came from someone on the NMW.

Yet if they don't make an apology they are hammered for it , if they are slick in front of the media they are seen as an empty suit and hammered.

Exactly, but whether the parents need better food preparation skills is one thing, but there are increasing numbers of kids going to school without having breakfast mainly because they are in rented accommodation without cooking facilities. Then the schools have to take up the mantle of providing the kids with food before lessons
Who's to blame - schools, supermarkets, fast food chains, the legislation around rented properties??

Not sure how you would apportion blame but there is no magic bullet. Lots of reasons why some children are in this position. I would include some parents in that though , I have seen packed lunches that had a chocolate bar and a packet of crisps in. You dont really need cooking facilties for breakfast though. I think cooking lessons for parents are good idea. I realise there can be a stigma attached to these types of courses and some will be reluctant to go. But if it can cut down on food waste and make budgets go further while feeding a family , no real down side.
