The article “Causes of Hunger in the U.S” states the following: “Around the world, wherever poverty exists hunger is sure to exist as well (Causes of Hunger in the U.S).” And even the government around the world has considered both inseparable. A new system called The Millennium Development Goals was introduced to put reducing hunger and poverty all together on top of the list. Besides reducing hunger and poverty by half, the MDG’s include the improving of maternal and child health, slowing spread of viral diseases, as well as achieving a universal primary education. It applies to all the countries and not just the less developed. Normally situations like this fall to where people in a state or community want to make a change by doing whatever it takes to reduce child hunger by even a percent or possibly more and that usually comes through dedication. Its bad enough that they are lacking food to eat but now after not eating for a certain amount of time they will not have enough nutrition they need to help maintain their body strength and that is what makes them weak and helpless. Kimberly Brown states that: “The consequences of malnutrition can be severe. Several studies have shown that food insecurity affects cognitive development among young children. Additional research shows that with hunger comes more frequent sickness and higher healthcare costs (Shocking need: American Kids Go Hungry. August 24, 2011).” With that being said, being malnutrition can lead to sickness, which involves going to hospitals for treatments but that only adds more to your plate which is already full due to poverty and food insecurity. America, in many communities, have considered creating programs that would help support children as well as families to provide them food supplements to women who are pregnant and to those with children under five years old whose income is less than 185 percent of the poverty limit. Jean Daniel states: “In fact, a shocking 49 percent of all babies born in the United States are born to families receiving food supplements from the WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) program (Shocking Need: American Kids Go Hungry. August 24, 2011).” This new program has obviously shown some progress throughout the country and has given brand new opportunities to the poor to handle situations more professionally than before.
