Moms on WIC

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

How do you use the evaporeted milk that you get every month?

Do you use it to cook? Do you add water and make use it as regular milk?


I have cans of this stuff backed up. 

Every now and then Dh will use it in his coffee. I will use it to cook with if we are running low on regulat milk. 

Today I mixed a few cans with water in a milk jug. Then I tried it. It didn't taste TOO bad. It tasted like Skim milk but with a funky little after taste. I used chocolate and made some chocolate milke for DS with it. He didn't seem to mind. 

Anyways so I was just wondering how you other WIC moms use this stuff?

Edit: For those who are saying you do not get it, do you CHOOSE not to get it or is it not offered to you?

You can get regular milk instead right? I used the cans to make milk for my DS. He never cared. I liked that it didn't go bad like a whole gallon would. Now we drink coconut milk which wic doesn't cover.

Look up things to make with it. Like for Thanksgiving and Xmas. Give homemade goodies as gifts. Gets the milk gone and presents covered. Like Oreo fudge? It may use that! .... send me some too please.

I was on WIC 11 yrs ago.  We didn't get evaporated milk or beans & rice.  We got: formula, baby juice, baby cereal, then cow's milk, cereal, cheese, and peanut butter.

I used it for cooking purposes. Like instead of using the regular milk, I'd use that in it's place. Also, sometimes I got the canned goat's milk, don't know if you can still get that on WIC, and I'd make soap.
