One in five children are at risk of going hungry, with Māori around twice as likely as non-Māori to live in food insecure households.

That’s one of the findings from the latest Child Poverty Monitor, which the University of Otago’s Child and Youth Epidemiology Service pulls together from a wide range of office data on behalf of the Office of the Children’s Commissioner.

The commissioner, Judge Andrew Becroft, says he’s disappointed the Ministry of Social Development held back some data because low response rates from low-income households skewed the results.

But he says even without that data it’s clear there has been little change in the past two years.

Māori and Pasifika children continue to lag on a wide variety of measure including health, infant mortality, educational achievement, housing and socioeconomic status.
