Jacinda Ardern launched the package today in Nelson, saying the package would give over 70 per cent of families with children more than they do under National's plan. 

"We want our children to get the best start in life without poverty. That's why our Families Package includes a $60 a week Best Start payment for families with babies and toddlers," Ms Ardern said. 

She said the "targeted approach" meant a family on $50,000 with a new-born and a three-year-old would receive almost $100 a week more than on National's package. 

"We can do this, with a less expensive package overall, because we aren't giving tax cuts that deliver $400 million a year to the top 10 per cent of earners."
