USDA Finalizes Changes to WIC Food Packages

The Department of Agriculture recently finalized a series of changes to the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), including a 30 percent increase in benefits for purchases of fruits and vegetables for children and an expansion of whole grain options for all participants. The changes further align the WIC food package with recommendations from the Institute of Medicine and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
