Is there enough food

  1. 1. Is there enough food ?
  2. 2. What is hunger ? Hunger refers to the lack of food • Why is food important? • A critical component to a healthy life is nutrition. From birth, the intake of vital nutrients is essential to the growth and development of a healthy individual. Good nutrition, particularly in the first three years of life, is important in establishing and maintaining a good foundation that has implications on a child’s future physical and mental health, academic achievement, and economic productivity.

Hunger: Facts, Figures and Statistics • In the Asian, African and Latin American countries, well over 500 million people are living in what the World Bank has called "absolute poverty“ • Every year 15 million children die of hunger, and every 3.6 seconds someone dies of hunger • For the price of one missile, a school full of hungry children could eat lunch every day for 5 years • Throughout the 1990's more than 100 million children will die from illness and starvation. Those 100 million deaths could be prevented for the price of ten Stealth bombers, or what the world spends on its military in two days! • One in twelve people worldwide is malnourished, including 160 million children under the age of 5. United Nations Food and Agriculture • The Indian subcontinent has nearly half the world's hungry people. Africa and the rest of Asia together have approximately 40%, and the remaining hungry people are found in Latin America and other parts of the world.
