Chapter 6.4 presents responses to questions where clients were asked about their children's skipping of meals, being hungry, and not eating enough.
- Among all clients with children, 6.3% stated that during the previous 12 months, their children were often not eating enough because they just could not afford enough food.
- Another 21.8% of the clients experienced such a situation sometimes during the previous 12 months.
- In over 0.8 million FA households, children had to skip meals because of lack of resources to buy food.
