The current study examined the relationship between food security and academic performance, specifically inattention, executive functioning, and learning problems. Using a food security module from the USDA to assess food security and the Conners 3-Parent Short form to assess inattention, executive functioning, and learning problems, parents reported their family’s current level of food security and their child’s current school-related behaviors and performance. Parent reports revealed a proportionate amount of concerns for inattention in households classified as high or marginal food security and low food security and a higher rate of concern for learning problems and executive functioning in households classified as low food security.
