    Twelve die 12 every minute from hunger.

    Twenty every minute from poverty-related causes in general.

    12 children…WAY too many. Makes me wish they would spend the stimulus money another way.

    Amen Sonya–the stimulus money could save the lives of over 2 million kids

    Okay so I’m pretty much the last person to get to answer today (my kids have had the stomach bug for the past week….interesting timing…makes me appreciate what we’ve been blessed with…that they aren’t going to die from a virus we casually just shrug off, “Oh it will run it’s course…” when millions of children die from illnesses less severe).

    I’m going to go with 12 also.

    The answer is:

    Six. More than 9 million children under age 5 die every year, and malnutrition accounts for more than one-third of these deaths. Most of these children live in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
