  • I don't know about Texas (I live in California), but when my daughter turned 6 months they started giving her a 64oz bottle of Apple Juice (had to be 100% juice, with 120% vitamin C, any brand). But they didn't give anything baby specific (like the gerber infant juices) they just told me to dilute it.

  • They should have a brochure at the WIC department that shows you what you can buy. Ask for one.
    Or just call them and ask what kind.

  • They'll give you a list of brands of 100% juice from which you can choose. (if not, be sure to ASK!!)

    In NY, we had a couple of different brands of canned juice and a couple different ones of frozen...Juicy Juice was among them.

  • i live in texas, and you can pretty much get any flavor of juice, but it normally has to be the store brand. (the cheapest) if you go inside a grocery store it should be labeled as a WIC item
