Li, Y. Zhong, K. Chen, Z. Zhong and J. Pan. Children who are neglected can experience serious developmental problems when becoming an adult. In this study, a cross-sectional survey was conducted in rural and urban Chinese cities from September 2012 to April 2013. A chi-squared test was used to compare the neglect rate between different groups. Participants were acquired from 21 schools and a total of 2,094 boys and 2,037 girls were involved in the study.
Researchers: Kyle Antonio Latayan & Margaret Manuel General Topic: Nutrition Narrowed Topic: Effects of malnutrition on children ages 6-10 in NCR in 2013 Thesis Statement: There are several effects of malnutrition among children living in the poverty line because they do not receive adequate education.

The Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota serves as a prime example where reports show that nearly 40% of families experience food insecurity (Bauer). Food deserts are merely a contributing factor to the current health epidemic and are part of economic struggles faced in Native American
A third of the child population below the age of 20 are considered obese. The way Americans eat today and the lack of physical activity is leading to serious health risk that will continue to get worse as children age. Parents need help from the government to help make changes in the environment that children grow up in. such as, limiting the unhealthy advertisements targeted at children, creating safe places for children to place and exercise, and encouraging parents to prepare nutritious meals for their children as opposed to fast food (Childhood Obesity). Interagency Working Group has started making a difference by setting recommendations for foods advertised to children.
It used nationally representative records (from the Early Childhood Longitudinal Study-Birth Cohort), concentrating on the 3,700 low-wage families within the pattern for whom there have been food insecurity, in addition to children 's results. Analysts researched ties among the timing and depth of food insecurity in early childhood and children 's reading, math, and social-emotional rankings in kindergarten. They interviewed parents and guardians and evaluated children when they were nine months old, and again when they were two, four, and five years old, viewing the children 's math and reading skills when they started kindergarten, in addition to their stages of hyperactivity, conduct issues, and
Lunch box audits are fundamental to the Munch and Move program because national data have demonstrated that high energy nutrient poor foods in a child’s lunchbox accounted for 1/3 of children aged 0-5 daily energy intake (Rangan, Randall, Hector, Gill & Webb, 2008). Thus these high energy nutrient poor foods displace core foods, which have severe negative impacts on the nutritional status of young children, contributing to increasing rates of obesity (Webb et al., 2006). Thus according to the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) (2007) a many children aged 2-3 are not meeting the benchmark on a numerous essential nutritional requirements, for example dietary fiber intake for this age group was the lowest at 15.5g/day, which may hinder the child’s growth a development (CSIRO, 2007). In essence the Munch and Move lunchbox audits involved childcare teachers categorizing lunch boxes into three main categories that is: balanced, which contained at least a sandwich or home cooked meal and either

The author believes that the changes in the demographics, economy, environment, and society are part of the cause for the increase of childhood obesity (Nestle 175). According to her research, children are fed with larger portions of junk food and very few young Americans eat the required foods in the food pyramid (Nestle, 175-176). Although, children usually eat one third of their meals in fast food places or school, most of them consume higher amounts of unhealthy items such as sodium chloride, fat, and calories (Nestle, 176). Nestle explained that companies do their job to market junk foods to kids (176). The writer mentions a lot about how young Americans are being targeted early in life to buy junk foods (Nestle 176).
In regards to families in the lower social economic class, Shanahan, Runyan, Martin, and Kotch (2017) discuss the public health problems that occurs from child maltreatment in families who are in poverty.

Also, Families who are experiencing poverty are cited as a risk factor for child neglect. Shanahan et al.
The study was conducted among randomly selected 4 tribal villages of Binpur block of Medinipur district of West Bengal. Data were collected through personal interview schedule, observational technique and case study method. The findings of the study revealed that the morbidity and mortality rates due to contagious ecthyma were highest but case fatality was very low. The results indicated that the major cause of mortality was diarrhoea. The age-wise morbidity and mortality rates of goats indicated that the highest mortality was recorded in kids of 0 to 3 months age group followed by young stocks and adults.

Of the children affected by these factors only 17% of children seek help through limited services that may not match their needs. (Rodger et al., 2014) In British Columbia, they have implemented a new education curriculum called Action Schools. This approach helps children learn to cope and manage psychosocial factors that affect them within a school setting. Programs such as Healthy Eating and Activity program and Action School should be considered to reduce the psychosocial factors that affect obese

There are several risk factors, which made the Australian Indigenous people a vulnerable population. The drastic changes of lifestyle from their early hunter food setting to a western absorption of food patterns, extreme changes in physical activity, changes in healthy habits and high consumption of sugary and fatty foods, and not being able to find healthy food close to them which promotes food desert. According to the Australia’s welfare 2015 report, Indigenous Australian children experience high levels of hardship in a variety of levels. In 2013-14, 143,000 children aged 0-17 received child protection services. Indigenous children aged 0-14 were seven times most likely to received child protection in comparison with the non-indigenous children.
