    Year: 2007

    This study identified differences between women from the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) and WIC/Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program participating households regarding household food security status, fruit and vegetable intake and behaviors, perceived diet quality, and education level; and assessed the relationship between household food security status and perceived diet quality and perceived health. Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program participants exhibit more indicators of a healthful diet, but appear not to be more food secure. Nutrition education regarding the benefits of fresh produce intake can help to improve diet quality and increase Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program participation. (author abstract)

    Year: 2013

    The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) provides supplemental nutritious foods, nutrition education (including breastfeeding promotion and support), and referrals to health care and other social services at no charge. WIC serves low-income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk. Because WIC is a Federal grant program for which Congress authorizes a specific amount of funds each year, the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) requires estimates of the total number of individuals eligible for the program to anticipate funding needs. This report provides estimates of the population that met WIC eligibility criteria in 2010. National eligibility is shown by categorical subpopulations including infants, children age 1 through 4 by single year of age, pregnant women, postpartum women who are breastfeeding, and postpartum women who are not breastfeeding. The ratios of program participants to eligibles, defined as the coverage rate, are provided for 2010. The report also shows...
