Final WIC rule excludes 2% milk
The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) has conducted further analysis of the final changes to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) announced last month by USDA. Reduced-fat or 2% milk is now excluded from the program unless the recipient can qualify for a specific health exemption.
USDA’s interim final rule from 2007 allowed children older than 24 months and women to choose either 2% reduced-fat milk or 1% low-fat or nonfat milks. With this change, only low-fat or nonfat milk will be the standard issue. Whole milk will still be allowed for infants under 2 years of age (12-23 months).
This rule is effective May 5. For more details and a chart of USDA’s WIC Food Package, read IDFA Summary of WIC Final Rule.
