Screening for food insecurity in pediatric primary care: A clinic's positive implementation experiences

Our project's purpose was to assess the acceptability of a screening and intervention program to address food insecurity (FI) in pediatric primary care. We implemented systematic FI screening during routine health supervision visits. Our positive results can help to inform implementation of routine FI screening in clinical practice.
