The purpose of this scoping review was to assess the physical, social, and mental health factors associated with food insecurity among refugee children in the MENA region. The Arksey and O’Malley (2005) York methodology guided the review. Included studies emphasized physical, social, and mental health factors associated with food insecurity among MENA refugee children. Twelve limitation categories were identified based on recurrence across studies. Major themes were highlighted from lessons learned across studies. Results may contribute to an understanding of limitations to consider when developing food relief interventions among children’s refugees in the MENA region.
