Food for thought : poverty, family nutritional environment, and children's educational performance in rural China.

Abstract

Insecure access to nutritious food is a common experience for poor households in developing countries. Despite the global scale of food insecurity, it has not been conceptualized by sociologists as a significant component of home environment or dimension of poverty that might matter for children's outcomes.
