How racism can damage our children’s development

There is now a compelling body of evidence linking families’ experiences of racism with poorer health and development in children. That’s according to Professor Yvonne Kelly, who believes there’s a clear argument for putting racism firmly in the mix when it comes to tackling the things that impact negatively on our children’s happiness and well-being, including obesity.

Professor Yvonne Kelly talks to Child of our Time Editor, Chris Garrington about research looking at mothers’ experiences of racism and how it affects their children.
