  • depending on if you are pregnant, if you are pregnant with another child. if pregnant you get food voucher kind of things with things like eggs, milk, juice, cheese. if you have a baby you get formula. but some states are different for qualifications and what's provided.

  • Here in NY, if you breastfeed, it's milk, eggs, cheese, juice, cereal, peanut butter or beans, carrots, tuna, infant cereal after i think 4/5 mos, $5 worth of fresh/frozen/canned produce, and I believe they are adding breads and rice soon.

  • You get milk, frozen/canned juice, eggs, cheese, peanut butter OR beans, cereal or Cream of Wheat.
    Some places give vouchers for farmer's market vegetables.
    If you child is under one, you get either carrots and tuna if you're breastfeeding, or formula if you're not.

    Some states, though, are cutting out different things, like juice for children under the age of one.

    My son gets milk, eggs, cheese, cereal, and juice.

    My daughter just gets baby cereal, no formula since I BF. I won't even use the cereal for another 3 months, but at least I get some stocked up, lol.

  • I got 6 1/2 gallons of milk, 2 dozen eggs, 2 lbs of cheese, 1 jar of peanut butter, and 4 big bottles of juice when I was pregnant and now I get all that plus 9 cans of formula and 3 boxes of baby cereal as long as I'm breastfeeding. Once he turns a year old I'll get all that (minues the cereal and formula) regardless of whether or not I'm still breastfeeding.
