WIC question

If you sign up for WIC but your child is lactose intolerant, can you get soy milk instead? I am thinking about signing up but if they don't do that then it's really not worth it.

  • yes, they will adjust your vouchers once a note from your babies pediatrition is produce stating they have to be on a particular type of milk.

  • wow that sounded kinda snooty of me when I said it wasn't worth it if not lol. I just meant that the WIC office is 30 min away and to go once every couple of months when we couldn't use the milk probably would cost in gas close to what we save on the other stuff

  • You will need a doctors note I think.. they give the basics unless the doctor says you need something different.

  • It might depend on your state, i know different places have different rules. the best way to find out is to call. We live in AZ and you can get soy milk here.
