WIC for milk allergy?

Will WIC make any exceptions or changes if my child is allergic to cow's milk? I can't imagine all that milk going to waste, it would be a shame.

  • It depends on the state, but I'm sure they will. Talk to your WIC office.

  • yes - when I went in to apply they asked if I needed something other than milk (i think she said lactaid was the other option, which is lactose free milk)
