Sometimes you just need a little help, especially with the way things are lately. But if you’ve ever looked at the cereals available with WIC, you may have been a little perturbed to see that there are no gluten-free options.
Ah, but there are (at least in Texas) – they just don’t generally tell you about it.
WIC stands for Women, Infants, and Children. It is a government program for low-income families, designed to help pregnant women and children under the age of 5 to get started on the road to good nutrition. Typical “packages” include milk, cheese, eggs, cereal, juice, beans or peanut butter, and now fruits and vegetables and whole grains.
If you are not in Texas, try searching your state’s WIC website, to find out more.
