Abstract: Nutrition is a major influence on child health and development. Diet habits begun early influence health and disease in adult life. U.S. government legislation and programs to improve the nutritional and health status of mothers and children are reviewed; these policies affect food supply and food demand. Following an overview of the nutrient needs of infants, preschool and school-age children, and women of child-bearing age, 3 major USDA Food and Nutrition Service projects are discussed with respect to their implications for maternal and child health. These are the WIC program, the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, and the Food Stamp Program. DHHS services which cooperate with state and local public health agencies in offering nutritional care to mothers and children are described; programs funded through Social Security Act Title V grants, projects in medically underserved areas, EPSDT programs, Head Start, and Indian health services programs are also discussed.
