As enshrined in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, children have the right to an adequate standard of living, and to be free from any form of health, education, nutrition, care or protection related deprivation. Whereas income poverty provides a vital measure of child poverty and vulnerability, it does not sufficiently capture the extent and depth of deprivations suffered by children. Put differently, children can experience poverty even when household income is above the poverty line.
