Editors: Dominic J. Lombardi
Book Description:
Federally supported child nutrition programs and initiatives, along with the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (the WIC program) reach more than 40 million children and some 2 million lower-income pregnant/post-partum women. The basic goals of federal child nutrition programs are to improve children's nutrition, increase lower-income children's access to nutritious meals and snacks, and help support the agricultural economy. This new book explores the background, history and topical issues of child nutrition and the WIC Program. (Imprint: Nova Press)
