Children 1 to 2-Year-Old
The 1 to 2 Year Old Child Food Package contains nutritious foods to help your child grow and be healthy.
This is the only WIC Food Package that includes whole milk. Young children are growing rapidly and need the fat from whole milk to help with growth and development. For more information view the 1 to 2 Year Old Child Food Package (PDF).
2 to 5-Year-Old
The 2 to 5-Year-Old Child Package contains nutritious foods to help your child grow and be healthy.
In this food package, the whole milk is replaced with skim, 1/2%, 1%, or 2% milk. By two years of age, a child's growth has slowed and he or she needs less fat. Lower fat milk contains just as much protein, calcium, vitamins, and minerals as whole milk, but has a lot less fat. Peanut butter is added as an alternative to beans. Peanut butter is a choking hazard for children under the age of 2. For more information view the 2 to 5 Year Old Child Food Package (PDF).
