Legislators Need To Iron Out Differences Over Organic Food In Child Nutrition Bills

August 18, 2010: 07:43 PM EST
Senate and House of Representatives versions of a bill to renew the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act differ fundamentally on how much organic food should be included in the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program for low-income women who are pregnant or post-partum, and for low-income children up to five years old. The Senate’s version is more generous, allow a variety of organic foods for WIC recipients; the House version allows only organic produce. The states basically administer the program, deciding what foods can be included. However, the federal government can also mandate included foods. The current child nutrition law expires on September 30.
