Food proverty and food insufficiency are important public health issues, frequently linked to poverty and deprivation. However, research on the nature, extent, epidemiology and etiology of food poverty in childhood is scarce. Previous work has demonstrated a lack of social class gradient in Ireland and has thus questioned traditional policy responses to this problem.
