Parents skipping meals so children donít go hungry as families struggle with longest cost of living squeeze in 60 years
Is this is what supposed to happened in U.S. :(

Hunger is becoming a reality for one in ten families who are skipping meals or relying on charity and hand-outs, a study said yesterday.

In some cases, mothers are putting their health at risk by eating only every other day to make sure their children do not go hungry.

Some nine per cent of people have sometimes skipped meals, gone without to feed their children or relied on friends, family or charity for food in the past 12 months, according to a study backed by Tesco.

Re: Parents skipping meals so children donít go hungry as families struggle with longest cost of living squeeze in 60 years
Been there, done it, lately.

But, hey..I lost weight! :)

We seriously are struggling, but I manage to make meals pretty cheaply.

Yesterday, I made a HUGE pot of homemade chicken and dumplings for around ten dollars. The chicken was 7 dollars, and I used a stick of butter, milk and flour (of course, my secret blend of herbs and spices) for the dumplings..it was delicious and lasted two days.

I know its very hard, these days, but we all have to learn to go back to home cooked meals. No fast food or take away meals. We have to learn to live like our grandparents did.

Kudos to you!! This is what I've always thought being a parent should be. Doing without in times of need so that your children are taken care of. It's what our grandparents called "tightening the belt". Start some conversations with your grandparents. They will give you great ways to make meals "from scratch". Literally meaning with very little to make meals with.

Also like the guy who stated the often overlooked "most Americans could stand to skip a meal or two"

Sorry OP I don't believe this

or if it is true, it is chosen by the people themselves.

why would I say this -

I work in a very poor school. the students all- and I mean all - dress very well if they are from downtown.

My clothes have been repaired so many times they are falling apart.

they wear the newest fashions, including sneakers that cost a lot, and have expensive electronics I can't afford.

Yet they are on free lunches - what a joke!


Free lunches so they can buy all the junk they want.

Not free because of need or hunger.

the proof is that it all gets thrown away.
all the fruit, they eat the dessert and main course SOMETIMES, mostly just the chips and cookies in the snack line.

Do not tell me about hunger. It does not get poorer than where I work. THEY ARE NOT HUNGRY.

I agree 100%. One can manage with very little with a not a whole lot of effort.

I always have tons of rice around, can do a lot with it and of course you can usually find chicken on the cheap.

So right! Our grandparents are full of wonderful stories, and recipes..if you're getting together with family this holiday season, and you're lucky enough to still be blessed with the presence of grandparents, do yourself a favor, and just spend some quality time. :)

Wonderfully said!

In our town today, there is a locally owned restaurant that is having a free Thanksgiving dinner for the less privileged today.

I know our town is small, so it's easier than big cities, but I hope everyone has enough these holidays.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28167778


Most states give out clothing vouchers to the children on food stamps and free lunch. Here in WV they get 200 dollars for each child. Those vouchers can be spent almost anywhere. Most kids around here go to Gabriel Bros and get name brands at cheaper prices or they spend their voucher at the mall. I have seen signs at JC Penny, Kohls, and Old Navy, so just because they have name brands doesn't necessarily mean their parents have money.

But back to the topic, I myself have to eat only once a day sometimes to conserve food for the kids. It sucks but hey sometimes I have to.

Another valid point. While childhood hunger is very heart breaking and real, I'd like to kick the parents in the head that prohibit food from being in the house because of their own comfort (TV, high end cars, clothes, etc).

ha I dress the family out of thrift shops the leftovers from the age of excess are still great. Hint I can get 10 sets of clothes including shoes for around 50 bucks per person. Socks and underwears from big lots adds another 20 bucks. recent great score was 50 pairs of gloves for 12 dollars , those should last for about 5 years before I gotta think about getting more.

Nothing wrong with having kids if your poor. It is wrong having kids if you arent' prepared to make the sacrifices required KNOWING you are poor.
It happens, but I can guaran-damn-tee you someone has a $1.50 to grab 2 condoms from the machine in the gas station bathroom. So, we don't need tax payer funded birth control.
