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