  3. Denying children access to a variety of nutritional options won't ameliorate the rates of childhood obesity. There's a fair amount of scholarship out there on food security and how it isn't about the quantity of food provided, but also the quality. Poverty and lack of access to food are directly linked to cases of childhood obesity.

    If you're interested in learning more, Diego Rose at Tulane University and Parke Wilde at Tufts University are conducting research on the links between food security, poverty, and obesity.
