This report uses data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to provide a comprehensive picture of the nutrient intakes, food choices, and diet quality of USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participants. Data are presented for SNAP participants, income-eligible nonparticipants, and higher income nonparticipants, broken out by age and gender. In general, there are more similarities than differences across the three groups.
