    It was probably filmed in Wales. The United States has a larger problem with obesity in poor childen than starvation.

    Hunger children in the US is less of a problem than the fear created by not knowing if there will be food for the next meal. Kids pick this up from their parents. Often kids will refuse to eat, feeling that they're causing the problem. It's a pretty sad situation. It's not the kids fault of course, but they still suffer.
