Abstract

According to existing literature, experiencing food insecurity can be linked to negative outcomes for children and their parent(s). There is not enough research on the correlation between food insecurity in childhood and attachment in adulthood. In the present study we looked at the correlation between experiences of food insecurity in childhood and attachment in adulthood. Participants were recruited through social media. In total, 262 adult participants completed an anonymous online survey. Results indicated a connection between food insecurity in childhood and attachment in adulthood, meaning those who experienced food insecurity as an adolescent, were more likely to struggle with attachment in adulthood.
