CTV: $3 a day makes big difference for expecting low-income moms: Study

May 13, 2016 — 

As CTV reports:

A University of Manitoba researcher has published an article that shows $3 a day makes a big difference for expecting moms who are also low-income. Marni Brownell’s findings come from a study looking at Manitoba’s Healthy Baby Prenatal Benefit.

The program gives moms who make less than $10,000 per year an extra $81 per month.

“Which, you know, works out to about $3 a day and I think some people look and say, ‘Man, how can $3 a day make a difference?’” said Brownell.


Research at the University of Manitoba is partially supported by funding from the Government of Canada Research Support Fund.
