UNICEF says, one in five children in rich countries lives in relative poverty.
According to a UNICEF report published on Thursday, United States and New Zealand are among the world’s worst performers for youth well-being.
The report also said, twenty per cent of children in Britain and the United States do not have access to sufficient safe and nutritious food.
Director of the UNICEF’s research office, Sarah Cook which published the report said, higher incomes do not automatically lead to improved outcomes for all children, and may indeed deepen inequalities.
She said Governments in all countries need to take action to ensure the gaps are reduced and progress is made.
