  7. Food insecure children are more likely to have chronic disease

  8. Food Insecurity and Chronic Disease • Associated with • diabetes • heart disease • Children experiencing hunger are more likely to experience • lower physical functioning (Casey, 2005) • more frequent stomachaches and headaches (Alaimo, 2001)

  9. Food Insecurity and Mental Disease • Increased depression • Increase anxiety (Weinreb 2002) • Increased suicidal tendencies (Alaimo, 2002)

  10. Food Insecurity and Mental Disease

  11. Food insecure children are more likely to be overweight or obese

  12. Food Insecurity and Obesity • Study of 6,500 children • food insecurity was positively associated with overweight and obesity in those 12 to 19 years of age. (Townsend & Melgar-Quinonez, 2003) • National sample of almost 7,000 children • childhood food insecurity was associated with overweight. (Casey 2005) • A three-city study (Boston, San Antonio, and Chicago) of 1,011 adolescents • maternal stress in combination with adolescent food insecurity significantly increased adolescent’s probability of being overweight or obese. (Lohman, 2009)

  13. Food Insecurity and Obesity • National sample of 8,693 infants and toddlers • indirect association between food insecurity and overweight that operated through parenting practices and infant feeding practices. (Bronte-Tinkew, 2007) • Among 2- 5-year-old girls – but not boys – in Massachusetts participating in WIC • food insecure homes had 47 percent higher odds of being obese compared to those from food secure homes. (Metallinos-Katsaras, 2009)

  14. Food Insecurity and Obesity • How does this occur? • Limited resources • Lack of access to healthy, affordable foods • Fewer opportunities for physical activity • Cycles of food deprivation and overeating • Chronic deprivation leads to neuro-chemical changes that increase reward effect of food even when food later becomes plentiful • Increased drive for energy-dense foods • High levels of stress • Stress hormones can further drive power of food reward • Greater exposure to marketing of obesity-promoting products • Limited access to health care

  15. Conclusions • Food insecurity has real effects on well-being of children and adults • Children who are food insecure are more likely to experience chronic mental and physical health problems • Food insecurity is bimodal – representing both under-consumption as well as mal-consumption • Chronic stress of real (or perceived) food deprivation can alter power and nature of food-desire
