WHAT IS THE MINIMUM COST FOR HEALTHY EATING?ALIMENTATION
Since 1922, the Dispensary establishes a list of required foods that meet, at minimum cost, the nutritional needs of everyone: this is called the Nutritious Food Basket. Its contents are regularly revised to adjust for diet recommendations and changes in eating habits. Its cost is updated three times a year.
These tools provide the information needed to evaluate the financial situation of pregnant women who arrive at the doors of the Dispensary. They are also useful for public health care workers.
