Full Answer

In addition to formula, WIC recommends quality staples, such as cereals, milk, eggs, beans, fruits, peanut butter, vegetables and whole grain foods. The goal is to encourage families to eat healthier. Each state is given the freedom to include foods that serve a diverse population. Families may choose items like tortillas. Some soy-based products are also included. In the state of Oklahoma, the list of foods is created with the tastes of the local community in mind.

WIC is responsible for designing a list of food choices that provides high levels of nutrition and meet the needs of pregnant women and young children up the age of 5. Foods are selected by a committee of health and nutritional experts. The committee's recommendations follow American guidelines while also taking into account the special health needs of at-risk children.
