The Pediatric Nutrition Surveillance System (PedNSS) and the Pregnancy Surveillance System (PNSS) are program-based surveillance systems that monitor the nutritional status of low-income infants, children, and women in federally funded WIC and maternal and child health programs.

Nationally, PedNSS data represent over 8 million children from birth to age 5. PNSS data represent approximately 1.3 million pregnant and postpartum women. These surveillance systems provide data that describe prevalence and trends of nutrition, health, and behavioral indicators for mothers and children. In New Hampshire, PedNSS and PNSS data is available for women and children enrolled in the WIC Nutrition Program. Posted here are reports for the last two years, both statewide and by county. For assistance in interpreting the data or receiving earlier reports, please contact National PedNSS and PNSS data and reports through 2011 are available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at:
