dc.description.abstractDespite research showing fruit and vegetable (FV) consumption reduces the risk of a variety of chronic diseases, low FV intake in the United States among both children and adults persists. Thus, increasing FV consumption has become an important focus among practitioners, policymakers, and researchers. Additionally, some research findings suggest that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) contributes to rising obesity rates among low-income households. A New York Times headline claimed food stamp households purchased more soda than non-SNAP households. The first part of this study reports on data for SNAP and non-SNAP purchases at one Wisconsin grocery retailer. Using these data, we compare SNAP and non-SNAP food purchasing patterns to see if we uncover similar findings as the research study that prompted the above news headline.en_US
