During the first decade of the new Millennium, the economic growth of Peru was impressive. According to the official statistics, the monetary index decreased dramatically. However, in 2011 a new government was elected because the gains of the economic boom was not tangible for the poorest and it was necessary a more inclusive approach of the economic and social policy. In this context, the government allocated US$3 mm dollars per year of public budget to social programs focused on children. This paper is an evaluation of the Peruvian government social expenditure focused on children. This issue is studied from two perspectives. On the one hand, the Multidimensional Poverty Index, based on Alkire Foster (2007) methodology has been applied to the LSMS (2010-14) taking into consideration the different age groups of children, ethnic groups and geographical dominium.
