AbstractNearly one fifth of US children and adolescents live in food-insecure households, with limited or uncertain access to food resulting from inadequate financial resources. Little is known about the association between food insecurity and health in young adulthood, an important developmental period when educational and economic transitions may increase risk for food insecurity. The purpose of this study was to determine the association between food insecurity and physical, mental, and sexual health outcomes in a nationally representative sample of US young adults
