Fewer U.S. Children Lack Access to Healthcare

As a growing number of U.S. children have gained health insurance over the past decade, fewer kids are missing out on things like physicals and dental exams, a recent study suggests. Steep declines in the number of uninsured have been well documented, largely as a result of growth in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

Sure, 57 percent of parents cite lack of time as a reason for purchasing prepackaged processed meals, the study found.

And often, parents said they also didn’t feel confident in their ability to cook or plan meals. “Ultimately, as a society, we need to increase…
