Food Insecurity in Households with Children: Prevalence, Severity, and Household Characteristiocs
Mark Nord (au)
This report shows that 84% of U.S. households with children were food secure throughout 2007, meaning that they had consistent access to adequate food for active, healthy lives for allhousehold members. Nearly 16% of households with children were food insecure sometime during the year, including 8.3% in which children were food insecure and 0.8% in which one or more children experienced very low food security — the most severe food-insecure condition measured by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Numerous studies suggest that children in food-insecure households have higher risks of health and development problems than children in otherwise similar food-secure households. This study found that about 85% of households with food-insecure children had a working adult, including 70% with a full-time worker. Fewer than half of households with food-insecure childrenincluded an adult educated past high school. Thus, job opportunities and wage rates for less educated workers are important factors affecting the food security of children. In 2007, Federal food and nutrition assistance programs provided benefits to four out of five lowincome,food-insecure households with children. Figures.
