Food and Nutrition Service Title: Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children Breastfeeding Policy Inventory. OMB Control Number: 0584–NEW. Summary of Collection: The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–296, Sec. 305) mandates programs under its authorization to cooperate with U.S. Department of Agriculture program research and evaluation activities. The mandate applies to Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) agencies. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is requesting approval to conduct the WIC Local Agency Breastfeeding Policy and Practice Inventory. WIC provides supplemental foods, health care referrals, and nutrition education to nutritionally at-risk, low-income pregnant women, new mothers, their infants, and children up to age five. Research has shown that there is no better food than breast milk for a baby’s first year of life. Breastfeeding provides many health, nutritional, economic, and emotional benefits to both mother and baby. FNS will collect information using a self-administered Web-based survey of all State and local WIC agencies. Need and use of the information: The information collected from the survey will obtain a census of (1) all measures of breastfeeding that State and local WIC agencies currently collect, including their definitions and methods of collection, as well as the most recent values of those measures; (2) the data system agencies use to store and process breastfeeding data and the types of information they report to other agencies or external organizations; and (3) breastfeeding policies and practices at State and local WIC agencies. Without the information FNS will not have a comprehensive assessment of the types of breastfeeding measures that State and local WIC agencies collect, the range of breastfeeding policies and practices agencies offer, and the type of data systems and reporting that agencies use for breastfeeding data storage and processing.
