Socioeconomic stressors can often contribute to nutritional disorders in children, particularly in minority populations, due to a lack of resources necessary to provide appropriate nutrition and education. There are a range of resources available within the area to assist families with the provision of nutritional foods and making healthy food choices.
Many of the families, who are on a limited food budget or receive government assistance to purchase food, lack the knowledge of how to buy and prepare a low-cost, healthy diet.
