Hungry Little Minds

About the Hungry Little Minds campaign

The Hungry Little Minds campaign, led by the National Literacy Trust and funded by the Department for Education, encourages parents and carers to adopt positive behaviours to boost their children’s communication, language and literacy development.

The campaign creates easy and accessible resources for parents, carers and early years settings with children aged 0-5, aiming to ensure that all children start primary school with the recommended literacy and language abilities.
