Abstract:

Authors’ conclusions: the situation of chronic poverty in childhood affects 1 in 5 children in the United Kingdom. Exposure to poverty at an early age is related to a worse physical and mental health situation.

Reviewers’ conclusions: in a cohort of 10 652 children under the age of 14 recruited between 2000 and 2022 in the United Kingdom, called the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS), those exposed to poverty showed a higher risk of mental health problems, obesity and chronic diseases.

Keywords: Child mental health. Child poverty. Child health parameters. Childhood obesity.
