Effectiveness of Registered Dietitian Services Highlighted in Congress

During three days of debate on the House Agriculture Budget, U.S. Rep. Doris O. Matsui (D.-Calif.) shared a story of the how the services of a registered dietitian successfully affected the health outcome for one of her constituents.

Rep. Matsui said:

One recipient is a mother who once thought WIC was only about giving free food or formula to low-income families, but her perspective about the program changed dramatically when she enrolled in the program herself. As she was expecting her first and only child, she entered the program to help her family make ends meet. Throughout her pregnancy, she received nutrition information and referrals. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with gestational diabetes, but because she was on WIC at the time she was seen by a dietitian every month. With WIC's support, her baby was born healthy and she had the support she needed to provide for her family.
