The Effects of Hunger in Children
Hunger has a greater effect than just a growling stomach. Children who live in food-insecure homes have higher negative impacts on their physical and mental health and wellbeing. They are more likely to have development delays, behavioral problems, become obese, and get sick more frequently. They may experience more stress and anxiety and fall behind academically.
