  • I think that is quite typical. I have not been on WIC but I had a friend that was and when I took he to the grocery store her options were very limited.

  • WIC gives a contract to a certain formula company based upon who gives the best bid. It's different from states to state.

    So.... beggars can't be choosers. If you don't like what they offer, buy it with your own money. It's like getting a car for free and complaining that it's a ford and not a chevy! lol.
