Good nutrition is not a luxury
Nutrition science continues to demonstrate that low-income Americans have significant nutrient shortfalls and that a multivitamin-mineral can safely fill essential nutrient gaps. By doing so, these beneficial products can provide an efficient solution for SNAP recipients looking to ensure adequate intake of essential nutrients. In addition, including a multivitamin-mineral as a SNAP program benefit creates no additional costs to the program and provides low-income consumers with additional choices to stay healthy. Therefore, allowing SNAP recipients to use their benefits to purchase a multivitamin-mineral would provide them with a safe and easy opportunity to improve their nutritional status.
