The Hearings presented in this publication review the current state of federal child nutrition programs. Much of the testimony focuses on (1) the Women Infants and Children (WIC) program, which serves exclusively low income, pregnant women, nursing mothers and their children; and (2) the Nutrition Education and Training (NET) program. Most witnesses before the Subcommittee on Nutrition spoke in favor of the approval of the Child Nutrition Amendments of 1980. Continuation and expansion of the school meal program were special concerns of many witnesses. Prepared statements addressed to the committee are appended. (Author/RH)
