Welfare reform and nutrition education: Alternative strategies to address the challenges of the future

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Legislative actions related to welfare reform may affect the future of nutrition education. Three important elements of welfare reform proposals are work requirements, federal spending limits, and delegation of program responsibility to the states. These elements could affect nutrition educators through changes in the funding and organizational structure of client services, a decline in economic conditions for some low-income households, and greater difficulties in reaching some high-risk clients. This article reviews such issues and suggests alternative strategies for nutritionists to use in addressing the challenges of the future.
