McDonald’s® Tri-State Owners Announce Recipients Of Second Annual Nutrition Program Grants

After attending the workshop and getting this information, I exclusively breastfed my daughter for six months. The girl, now aged two years, is healthy and happy; she rarely falls sick as her immunity is strong, which I attribute to breastfeeding,” says Judy Namanda, the Post Bank head of human resource. “I realised there was a lot of nutrition information we often take for granted, which affects our children’s health as they grow up. I learnt how to mix mukene (silver fish) in my baby’s food as soon as she started eating, which has improved her appetite,” she adds.

ND Farmers Union: Keep nutrition in new farm bill

(AP) North Dakota Farmers Union officials say they want to keep nutrition programs in the new farm bill. The legislation is currently at a standstill. The Democrat-controlled Senate approved a bipartisan five-year bill to govern ag programs and food stamps. The Republican-controlled House wants to put nutrition programs into a separate measure in order to seek deeper cuts to food stamps. The House has refused to name its negotiators. North Dakota Farmers Union president Woody Barth says linking the bill to nutrition programs is important to family farmers and ranchers. He says it’s about “connecting the people who grow food to those who eat food.” Barth says nearly 70 members from the state group plan a trip to Washington in early September to lobby for a new farm bill.
