    Savings accounts from when a child is young is definitely a great idea!
    You will usually find interest from a child's account will be included in the return of the parents. Tax rate will depend on the income of the parent.

    I was going on the basis of the previous few posters who were talking about setting up accounts and adding to them each week or month for their child.
