Nutrition Aspects of President's 2012 Budget

President Obama released his proposed $3.7 trillion budget for Fiscal Year 2012 that includes spending cuts in many areas and increases in others. The budget plan aims to reduce deficits by $1.1 trillion over a decade while increasing spending for education and other areas.

Regarding food and nutrition, the president's budget:

  • Targets increases for research in areas that are "key to American leadership: human nutrition and obesity reduction, food safety, sustainable bioenergy, global food security and climate change."
  • Provides $7.4 billion to support "supplemental nutrition assistance available to low-income and nutritionally at-risk pregnant and post-partum women, infants and children up to age 5."
  • Provides $35 million for the Healthy Food Financing Initiative "to bring grocery stores and other healthy food retailers to underserved communities."
