Almost 6,000 baby boxes have been received by new parents in the north-east.
As the Baby Box initiative celebrates its first birthday this week, new figures have shown that 5,932 families across the NHS Grampian area have had boxes delivered to them in the past year.
The number of boxes received in the area ranks third in the country, behind NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and NHS Lothian.
A Scottish Government scheme, it includes a number of essential items for parents and babies, while the box itself can be used as a safe sleeping place.
Children and early years minister Maree Todd said: “A year on from when the first Baby Boxes were delivered, we can say these boxes are having a real impact on the lives of those who receive them.
“These boxes demonstrate that, as a society, we value each and every child in Scotland. We’ve had a very successful first year, with 85% take-up.”
