US Food stamps (SNAP) can not buy supplements such as Vitamin D

Mister: Congress should put more nutrition in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

  • “Mister is president and CEO of the Council for Responsible Nutrition”
  • “About 40 million low-income Americans rely on SNAP benefits to afford food”
  • “Right now, SNAP benefits can be used to purchase virtually any food — but they can’t be used to buy multivitamins. That makes no sense”
  • “Multivitamins aren’t a substitute for food or a magic bullet that sanctions unhealthy diets. But in a world where all of us — low-income families in particular — don’t eat like we should, multivitamins are a scientifically-proven way to help individuals meet nutritional requirements.”
