A competition to design a box of essentials to be given to every newborn child in Scotland at birth has been launched, in an effort to give every child born in Scotland an equal start in life.
The Scottish Baby Box will be based on the successful Finnish model – where it is credited with contributing to one of the lowest levels of infant mortality in the world.
Delivered by the Scottish Government, with the help of the V&A Dundee and Scotland’s colleges and universities, the competition has been launched to design the surface of the box in aid to make it a more than simply a container of items, but a way in which the child’s first year can be captured and recorded.
