WV WIC Milk Notice: To strengthen consistency with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the final rule requires that only 1% or nonfat milk be allowed for children over 2 years of age and women. Beginning January 1, 2015, women and children age 2-5 will only be allowed to purchase 1% or nonfat (fat free or skim) milk with WIC benefits.
Federal regulations requires vendors to offer Program participants the same courtesies that are offered to non-WIC customers. Therefore, a WIC authorized vendor may not treat WIC customers differently by offering incentive items that are not offered to non-WIC customers.
