Authors: Nancy Cole and Mary Kay Fox 
Book Description:
This book uses the most recently available data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES 1999-2004) to provide an up-to-date and comprehensive picture of the diets of Food Stamp Program (FSP) participants in three age groups—children 1-18 years old, adults 19-59 years old, and older adults 60 years and older. The book examines nutrient intakes, diet quality, and food choices. Data are presented for FSP participants and two groups of nonparticipants—those who were income-eligible for the FSP but did not participate, and higher-income individuals who were not eligible for the FSP.
