Food and Nutrition Programs and Obesity 1976-2002
Michelle Ver Ploeg (au); Lisa Mancino (au); Biing Hwan-Lin (au)
The Food Stamp Program and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) address poor nutrition among low-income adults, infants, and children. Higher rates of obesity among the populations these programs serve have led to concern that the programs may, ironically, contribute to the problem. To analyze the relationships between program participation and body weight, the authors compared participants with non-participants. The most recent data showed that, in contrast to prior years, women food stamp participants had a Body Mass Index similar to that of income-eligible non-participating women and women with moderate incomes and were no more likely to be overweight or obese.
