Should SNAP be restricted to healthy food, similar to the WIC program?


The WIC (Women, Infant, Child) Federal Program is focused on healthy and nutritious foods and cannot be used for anything else. The current SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) or Food Stamp program allows for a much wider list of purchases, including foods that are very low in nutritional value or snack-type foods. Should this be changed to only include healthy foods? What other thoughts can you share?
