If it only goes to age 5. Shouldn't it be Women Infants and Toddlers? Why do they stop at age 5? Should they offer partial packages to qualifying older children? Maybe just during the summer? My son just turned 5 and started school and even though he is in school w/ reduced meals I still have to provide his milk and dinner and snacks and stuff. All him meals on weekends and I fear for the summer. I know WIC isn't much but it helps soooo much. It's a big deal to not have to buy bread, milk, cheese, juice, beans and cereal each month. Anyone agree?

I suppose it's not WIT because 3-4-5 year olds are considered children, not toddlers. If we're going to get technical, it should be PWPPWNWIYC. Pregnant Women, Post Partum Women, Nursing Women, Infants, and Young Children. I suppose it's easier for it to just be WIC. I hope the OP doesn't think I was bashing her, or looking down on her at all, trust me I understand having a hard time supporting your family but not being poor enough for help. My husband and I both work (although I'm just a part timer) and it's hard.
