by Mark Nord

Food Assistance and Nutrition Research Report No. (FANRR-34-13) 2 pp, July 2003

Household food security, defined as access at all times to enough food for active healthy living, is taken for granted by most American children. However, some parents do have difficulty at times getting enough food for themselves and, more rarely, for their children. This brief examines the extent to which the diets and eating patterns of American children are disrupted because their families cannot always afford enough food.

Keywords: hunger, food insecurity, food security, food assistance
