Abstract

Low income families were interviewed to determine factors related to the number of family food servings per week. A multiple regression model indicated that participation in WIC (supplemental food program for women, infants and children), household size, and number of different income sources were associated with more family food servings per week. Number of food servings per week decreased the last week of the month most often in families with younger members.
