WIC- do they think I'm feeding a baby COW?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I just used my WIC checks for the month and noticed they gave me six gallons of milk...why? Yes, I'm nursing but do they think I'm nursing a baby cow? Why so much milk but only one small block of cheese and one tiny loaf of bread? Weird!

That's why I take prenatals


Quoting Annettey19:

I think it's just to make sure you drink enough milk to replenish your calcium levels, especially if you're breastfeeding.

You can swap a gallon for a second block of cheese

I get 6 a month too. Like good lord! How can we possibly use all this milk.

We used to get 9 gallons a month for me and a toddler. We use maybe 1 gallon per month. Commercial dairy is really unhealthy, especially in such high amounts.

If you have time you can make mozerella with a gallon of whole milk. It's not too hard!

Yeah the amount of baby food is a waste so I'm considering giving it to a food pantry.
