During the Live Below the Line five day challenge, over 40,000 children will die of malnutrition. It shouldn’t be like this. The world produces enough food for every child. Today, UNICEF is doing more than anyone to stop children suffering from hunger and dying from malnutrition.

The challenge is to buy all the food and drink you need to survive for five days with just £5 (£1 per day). There are no specific rules on what you can and can’t do, it’s really up to you about how strict you want to be (e.g. using oil, or spices etc). top tips from UNICEF UK staff
