    • Abstract:
      This chapter describes food insecurity, the public food assistance system, and the influence of public food assistance participation on family and child well-being. It also describes the implications of this information for research and policy. Food insecurity is more common among families with children, particularly those with young children. Although adults in food-insecure households often shield children from disrupted eating and reduced food intake, in 8% of food-insecure households with children under 18, the children themselves experienced food insecurity. The chapter discusses public food assistance programs such as Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the National School Lunch Program, and the National School Breakfast Program. Food security is often considered a measure of hardship and can lead to poor health and other negative outcomes among children and parents. Food insecurity can be considered an important outcome in and of itself that should be studied and targeted for policy and program intervention.
