VAT on children clothes and footwear

Im running a small shop where i sell some food items and children items and my turnover has never been that above the VAT threshhold. However now that i seem to have increased business im getting worried about VAT and how to charge it. Could you please explain to me how VAT works on children clothes and footwear. Im also selling a number of children toys and car seats..im told there is no VAT on these.

    Generally one charges VAT on most goods and services. The VAT that you should charge 20% VAT most of the time – but the following also apply for children items:
    1. Reduced rate of 5% Some goods and services, eg children’s car seats and some energy-saving materials in the home
    2. Zero rate ie charge VAT of 0% on all zero-rated goods and services eg children’s clothes,children footwear; or food items.
