Child food insecurity rate

Definition:
The percentage of the children under 18 years old that do not have consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. Food insecurity refers to a lack of available financial resources for food at the household level.

Why do we measure this?
Food insecurity is a social determinant of health. Low-income families are affected by multiple, overlapping issues like lack of affordable housing, social isolation, chronic or acute health problems, high medical costs, and low wages. People experiencing food insecurity often consume a nutrient-poor diet, which may contribute to the development of obesity, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.
