WIC Changes

The Lempert Report
August 10, 2023

Back in 2009, the USDA made changes to the WIC food program. The changes, which included more whole fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lower fat milk, were the first comprehensive revisions to WIC since the nutrition program began in the 1970s. I want to just remind people that Michelle Obama was very involved with that when she was first lady, and the great news is that you know what we now have is we have more kids eating more fruits and vegetables and whole grains than ever before.
