Children of Immigrants and Nutrition SupportsChildren of immigrants are 1.5 times more likely to live in families with incomes below the official poverty threshold than are children in native-born families, despite high levels of secure parental employment. Likewise, children of immigrants are at greater risk of living in food-insecure households than those of native-born families and are also more likely to live in households where children are also food insecure (14 percent versus 11 percent). This fact sheet discusses the impact of nutrition support programs and children in immigrant families.
