Here is an article taken from the USDA Economic Research page I found interesting and thought to share:
Overview
Food choices influence the health and well-being of individuals. Current dietary concerns include the overconsumption of calories, added sugars, and saturated fats; under consumption of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables; and health conditions such as obesity.
ERS examines factors driving dietary choices and the economic consequences of nutritional and health outcomes. Food and dietary choices are influenced not only by prices and income, but also by family structure, time constraints, psychological factors, nutritional information, and Federal food and nutrition assistance programs. ERS provides in-depth economic analyses of:
the Nation's food consumption trends,
consumer reactions to changes in economic factors such as food prices and income,
consumer reactions to changes in noneconomic factors such as nutrition labeling,
dietary patterns, and
the relationship between food intake and nutritional/health outcomes.

More info on pregnancy, breastfeeding and COVID-19.

THIS LIBRARY WAS CREATED in FEBRUARY 2020. The posts were crated using information published in The Lancet on February 12, 2020. Our understanding of COVID-19 continues to evolve. _________________

As our community prepares to face a new and novel virus we need to be prepared - not just for the virus but for people's anxieties and fears.

One of the most important things we can do as providers and advocates is to empower people with information. When we all have the facts it's easier for us to make informed decisions.

The Milk Meg

KEEP BREASTFEEDING YOUR BABY EVEN IF YOU HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO THE CORONAVIRUS OR HAVE THE CORONA VIRUS. If you are reading anything that states otherwise then you are not receiving evidence based information and not following the guidelines by every health organisation including the WHO and CDC and UNICEF.

There are many reasons for this including:
*Your baby will have been exposed long before you started showing symptoms.
*Your milk continues to provide crucial illness prevention and healing properties.
*There is no evidence to support the recommendation to stop breastfeeding.

Angela's Story: Lifelong Friends for Mom and Baby

During #BlackHistoryMonth, it's important to build awareness about the health disparities that exist for African American women 🤱 and their children. Unfortunately, infant mortality continues to vary by race, and non-Hispanic African American women are 2.3 times more likely to face infant mortality. When African American women are empowered 💪 with the tools 🔧 to manage and reduce stress ⬇️, they are more likely to have and raise happy, healthy children 👶. Learn more about how programs like Black Infant Health provide the support that African American mothers need. ➡️https://youtu.be/6_4S4ntsa88

When Angela enrolled in the Black Infant Health (BIH) program over two years ago, she didn’t realize the impact it would have on her—and also her unborn baby...
