WIC restrictions on baby formula have been lifted

WIC restrictions on baby formula have been lifted according to Senator Mark Warner.

The Senate passed legislation allowing families in need to buy additional types of baby formula to alleviate the shortage situation.

Previously only center types of formula could be purchased using Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children funds.

The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Woman, Infants and Children is also known as WIC.

An email from Senator Warner states that this gives families equal opportunity to feed their children.

The email went on to say that Warner and other legislators would keep up the pressure plaguing the situation until the baby formula issue is solved.
